With Thanksgiving fast approaching, have you decided which cocktail you'll be serving with your feast? Let us suggest a Cranberry Rum Punch, straight from our book Infuse: Oil, Spirit, Water. 
This rum punch was inspired by the classic holiday flavors of fresh cranberries and warm mulling spices. The recipe uses ingredients that many people have in their homes during the holiday season (no need to add to your shopping list). The punch is as easy to portion in large batches, making it perfect for entertaining a crowd. Just shake up 3 or 4 at a time in a cocktail shaker, pour into glasses, and top with sparkling wine.
