lacking Music Rebalance:

Mult a second copy of the source in parallel. 
Listening only to the copy, gate it so it sounds like drum hits only.
Reverse it's polarity.
Mix it with the original at whatever level reduces drums appropriately.   Tweak gate settings to see if any slight variation improves results.

If you ever need more drums, don't reverse polarity.

^That's a cool trick.

Lacking that or Music Rebalance (looking forward to trying that out sometime!), if going the compressor route, try a plugin which is specifically targets transient shaping which should better target the drums.

That is a very cool feature.
Does anyone know if there is anything similar in Adobe Audition?
