Welcome summer temperatures with Henry's Rum Runner

Henry's is a family-owned Cajun restaurant with roots in Baton Rouge, La., located at 5126 Hamilton Rd., Columbus.

Henry Hamilton, whose father opened the restaurant last May, serves as the unofficial bartender and enjoys developing his own drink recipes.

Henry said they pride themselves on having an extensive liquor selection at their bar, offering everything from Johnny Walker Blue Label whiskey to several top shelf selections of bourbon, scotch and tequila.

He shared his rum runner recipe with her magazine, something he was perfecting even as he shared it with us.
