This cocktail, created with Venezuelan rum, will warm you up on a cold, gloomy day.

Diplomatico Añejo Rum is a smooth, award-winning spirit, slightly spicy, with notes of nutty caramel and molasses. The two liqueurs in this recipe — Yellow Chartreuse, an herbal, honey-sweetened liqueur, and Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, a French “triple sec” created with orange peels and cognac — are perfect complements to the mix.

When combined with sweet, slightly sour cranberry juice, you get a rich, comforting cocktail that’s sure to sustain you through the winter months.

1 1/2 oz. Diplomatico Añejo Rum

1/2 oz. Yellow Chartreuse

1/2 oz. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao

2 oz. Cranberry juice

Rosemary sprig, cranberries and powdered sugar for garnish
