Rum cream, where can I find it?

  • 8

I am looking for plain Rum Cream, not cinnamon spiced or RumChata.

Wray & Nephew or Sangsters, something like that. I am in NJ so cannot order liquor through mail order.

Any suggestions?

  1. Ask a larger liquor store to get it for you. I can get it at some of the larger stores here in CT. It is a required ingredient for Dirty Bananas or body shots! ;)

      Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, 1 bottle lasts forever for us. Not sure the liquor store will order it just for us.

    2. I have never had Wray and Nephew's, but have heard it is very good.

      El Dorado's Rum Cream is quite decent.

      1. What is rum cream used for...is it just rum with cream in it?

          It's a rum/cream liqueur, usually with spices, kind of like Baileys Irish cream liqueur, but much better. Used as a liqueur drunk straight, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.

            In Jamaica, it is used in many drinks including a Dirty Banana which also includes rum, Tia Maria, simple syrup, milk and a banana. At one resort, they go through a lot just for body shots.

              We had it as part of a drink called a Hummingbird, while in Jamaica.

              Rum cream
              Coffee liquor
              Grenadine
              Milk
              Banana

              Tastes like a banana split. Fantastic. Dirty bananas are great also.
