Do You Know The State Drink Of Michigan?
A Detroit man by the name of Jerome Adams just passed away at the age of 77. That name didn't mean anything to me either until I found out he was famous for something. Jerome Adams is famous for inventing what many consider the State Drink Of Michigan.
According to our friends at FOX 2 in Detroit, Jerome created the original 'Hummer', an adult milkshake, 50 years ago at the Bayview Yacht Club on the Detroit River. I've never had one but apparently it's a blended shake with white rum, Kahlua, vanilla ice cream and ice cubes. Anyway, I had no idea. I thought maybe the official drink was beer or wine. Who knew it was a 'Hummer'. I guess I'll have to try one and it sure sounds like a pretty good summer drink if we ever get summer! Check out the rest of the story by clicking HERE.
