Instructions:

When making any of the Hummer cocktails, let the ice cream soften some before using.

Optional: For a milder flavor, you may add some ice as desired.

Place all the ingredients (for the drink you select) in a blender and blend until smooth. The mixture will be thick like a milkshake.  Traditionally these drinks are served in highball glasses, but I sometimes serve them in other types of glasses.

Each recipe makes 2 small servings or 1 larger serving.

NOTE:  I can very easily drink the whole batch myself!
