2 ounces Old New Orleans Cajun Spice Rum
Brown sugar cube
Dash of water
Place brown sugar cube in the bottom of a julep tin, add a dash of water and handful of mint. Lightly muddle the mint into the sugar, and coat the interior of the tin. Add crushed ice to fill the tin half way and pour in the rum. Stir to get the tin cold and top off with crushed ice. Garnish with a short straw and a healthy handful of mint.
