Award-winning Cocktail Director Lu Brow has earned praise for attracting a vibrant bar scene with inventive libations at DTB (Down the Bayou), all served up in a relaxed and convivial setting.

In honor of National Rum Day, Lu Brow will feature two specialty rum cocktails, including the Down the Bayou made with spiced rum, fresh lime juice, ginger-infused simple syrup, and sliced strawberries; and the Dude’s Delight made with Rougaroux Full Moon rum, St. George coffee liqueur, cold coffee, whole milk and dark cocoa dust.

Thank you to DTB for sharing both of these recipes with us here!
