Cranberry Spiced Rum Fizz #CaptainsTable

Spiced Cranberry Rum Fizz #CaptainsTable by
When I think festive holiday drinks, the first ones I lean toward are FIZZES!  I don't know what it is with me and fizz, but every time I turn around, I come back with a fizzy drink in hand.  I know.  Fizz is festive!  Say it with me now... Fizz. Is. Festive.

So, when trying to decide which alcoholic beverages to offer with Thanksgiving dinner, a fizz naturally came to mind.  I figured I'd either go pumpkin, ginger, pomegranate, or cranberry.  Those flavors are the first to spring to mind when I think Thanksgiving cocktail flavors.  I knew that I wanted it to complement the flavor of Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum.  Heck, more than complement, I wanted it to show-off the rum!

Cranberry with a splash of blood orange bitters was the answer.  The deep flavor and color of the black rum mingled nicely with them, and the "fizz" made the whole cocktail sparkle with holiday flair.
