Jerri's notes for this 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.

Personalize This


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!

sounds yummy, I'm not a drinker...but some of the recipes on here for drinks are wonderful! I might be converted!

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.
