Exactly like the Hummingbirds in Jamaica. Hint: for the Strawberry syrup, you can use one found with the pancake syrups.

I'm on the fence about this one. This has got to be one of the most interesting cocktails I've ever had. I made no substitutions, I had to use half of a FROZEN banana only because I had no ice. Different. Very different.

This is the real deal, a true Jamaican Hummingbird. And believe me, I know. I had asked every bartender down there for the recipe, and this is it. Thanks for sharing!

My husband and I honeymooned in Jamaica 9 years ago. We fell in love with these, and lost the paper one of the bartenders wrote the recipe on! I was soooo excited to find this. It's exactly the same!!! thank you so much!

This drink was so yummy it tasted like a cross between a milk shake and a smoothie---but be careful the liquor will sneak up on you.

I've searched and searched for this recipe and was DELIGHTED when I found it here. I was even happier because they taste just like the ones we had on our honeymoon in Negril. Yum--- this is my husbands favorite sweet drink.

Just like I remembered having on the island! It was wonderful!

Rum Cream has been very hard to find in the states, but Cruzan just started making their own version of Jamacian Rum Cream. It tastes just like the stuff we all remember from our honeymoons! WAHOOO!!
