The season’s best sippers bring a little brightness to the warm and fuzzy. The Winter Charm cocktail does exactly that—a balancing act of spiced and tropical flavors held together by a backbone of BACARDÍ Black rum. And if barley syrup sounds too strenuous an undertaking, don’t worry—it’s easier to make (and more delicious) than you think.
