About this recipe: This alcoholic drink is not only refreshing, but it also tastes like a dream. It's creamy, smooth and delicious. Rum is liquidised with coffee liqueur, ice cream and ice. The perfect summer drink to enjoy all year long. For an additional indulgence, try it with chocolate ice cream!
The rum ruins this recipe. Use vodka instead, it's so much better! I also use chocolate ice cream for variation, and like to add some chocolate syrup inside the glass before serving. As is, not that great, the rum is the overpowering flavor. But sub vodka, and this is a winner! - 28 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Where I worked, this was called a Hummer. And it's exactly what you want to do when you take your first sip. What may have ruined it for others: Our recipe called for equal parts Kahlua and rum. I can see how someone might feel the 3:1 ratio would be a bit much. Also, we did not add ice, just the liquors and vanilla ice cream. My favorite cocktail. - 27 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I almost gave it 4 stars because the taste of rum was powerful - but then realized it was my fault. I only had dark rum on hand and used that. Therefore it kind of overpowered the mocha taste. I will make it again using light rum and might try using half vanilla ice cream and half coffee. Thanks submitter. - 21 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
