When most people think of rum cocktails, they probably don't envision the fall season. That's because rum is traditionally associated with summer, heat and the good ol' times spent around a pool or body of water, sitting back and enjoying the sunshine. But, guess what, guys, we're here to change everything you think about rum.

Just last week, we had the opportunity to not only drink Bayou Rum all week long down in Lake Charles, Louisiana, but we also got pampered, too, getting served some of the best rum cocktails known to man. Some of our favorites came from the mind and careful artistry of Kelly Bistok, the Head Bartender at Ember Grille and Wine Bar at L'Auberge Lake Charles, who showed us three recipes that used rum in cocktails in various ways.


Introducing us to three rum cocktail recipes that she created: the Hunting Ground, the Wire Walker and the Le Loup-garou, here's how you can take Kelly's creations and make them in the comfort of your home this fall season. After getting to sample each of these cocktails, trust us, you're going to want to serve these up to keep yourself nice and cozy this fall.
