    Hummingbird is a great drink especially when the bartender gives it some extra HUMMM,,,aka Appleton Rum..
    ARE WE THERE YET??

    that's the drink recipe we use as well, and it does turn out pretty close, especially if you are using the Sangsters you brought back with you from your most recent trip! If you leave out the strawberry syrup, you've got yourself a dirty banana, which is also delish! The only problem is, once your Sangster's runs out, you've got to book another trip or in my case, resort to the not as yummy Cruzan rum cream which is all I can get up here in the Midwest!!

    I too fell under the spell of a huge flock of Hummingbirds a few weeks ago in Negril...

    I like to think of a Hummingbird as a fruit smoothie with alcohol.

    Reading is fundamental. It's just that for some, it's more mental than fun.

    Default Thank you

    Wow! We are going to CSA in two weeks after going to CN last year. Saw this thread and made a hummingbird and a dirty banana and almost feel like we are there already. Now how do you make a chocolate monkey?
