Jamaican Rum Cream

Jerri Thomas Recipe

I fell in love with rum cream on our first trip to Jamaica. Unfortunately, Sangsters (the Jamaican brand) isn't sold in the US so after going online and trying many recipes, tweaking this, removing that, I found what is the closest in flavor to the Sangster's brand. It makes an excellent gift as most people aren't familiar with it.

14 oz
can sweetened condensed milk
1-1 1/4 c
amber rum (appleton's is what i use)
1 c
cream or half and half
3 Tbsp
chocolate syrup
2 Tbsp
fresh brewed coffee
1 tsp
real vanilla extract
1 tsp
coconut extract

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients in a blender and run on a low setting for a minute, just long enough to blend.
Refrigerate for an hour for flavors to blend. Serve over ice, in coffee, over ice cream, or in any way one would use Irish cream. It has the same texture but not the bite of whiskey. Keeps for 2 weeks in the fridge, I'm told. It never stays around long enough at our house!

Thanks for posting this, Jerri;

The one bottle that we brought back from our cruise just got wiped out and buying more online is prohibitively expensive... We'll just have to make our own!

I, too, fell in love with Jamaican Rum Cream when I was in Jamaica. I am going to try your recipe and hope it is close. If I am sipping Jamaica Rum Cream and playing reggae music I can transport myself back to Ocho Rios.

I also fell in love with Sangsters and was SO disappointed when I couldn't find it here at home. If you happen to be close to an area with Duty Free stores, you can get it in some locations. I'm in Michigan and the Duty Free in Canada carries it so I am lucky enough, once in a while, to have someone willing to make a rum run for me!!! I will try this when the cupboard is bare. Thanks for sharing

@KRISTAL Flateau kflateau - Have you tried Appleton's Cream Rum? I can't get Sangster here either, but I can get Appleton's, and it is awesome. Even though I can buy it, I can't wait to try your recipe! I found that Pina Colada mix with cream rum is so, so good! In fact it's so good that it's really easy to forget that there's rum in it. Until you try to stand up, that is!
