    Rum cream... Sangsters... think Bailey's except with rum instead of Irish Whiskey... great stuff... AND it comes in a few flavors... personally, I prefer the original.

    Hummingbird is rum cream, Tis Maria, half a banana, milk, fruit syrup and blend with ice. Somebody will correct me if this recipe is wrong. Enjoy

    Softail19,

    Your ingredient list is absolutely correct, but to be more specific, the fruit syrup should be Strawberry Syrup. We've found that Mucker's has the best. Coming up with the correct ratio is the hard part. We've found that 5 parts Rum Cream, 4 parts Tia Maria (which they no longer sell in PA liquor stores, so now we have to find a source for both Rum Cream and Tia Maria), 3 part Milk, 2 squirts Strawberry Syrup, and 1 whole banana, blended thoroughly with ice makes about 2.5 large Hummingbirds. Plus it's easy to remember, just 5-4-3-2-1. I miss them so much!!!
