Spiced rum and fiery ginger beer combine with tart cranberry juice in this flavorful cool-weather cocktail. Be sure to use true cranberry juice — not a cranberry juice cocktail or other blend — otherwise this drink will turn out cloyingly sweet. If you can't find 100% pure cranberry juice, pomegranate juice is a good substitute.
