Looking for fun Fall drinks on Thirsty Thursday?

NEW ORLEANS - Test Kitchen Taylor and Kenny Lopez are trying out some awesome drinks made with delicious, local Bayou Rum.  Bayou Rum is made in Lacassine, Louisiana.

Fall is here! It's time for the leaves to fall, pumpkins to be decorated and the cooler weather to arrive (well, maybe not if you live around here). But what do you drink? Twist Reporter Kenny Lopez asked Test Kitchen Taylor who says Bayou Rum is the way to go!  Here are the recipes for a few fall-flavored drinks.
