Muddle a chunk of apple, combine ingredients, shake, fine strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Garnish with a few dashes of Peychaud's bitters.

Typical rum is made from molasses, whereas rhum agricole is made from "fresh" sugar cane juice. This makes for a lighter, brighter taste excellent for mixing. The "rhum vieux" are rhums that are aged over three years, and are perfect for sipping neat.
