Matthew Ficke of the Columbia Room in Washington, D.C. serves this fruity, effervescent drink during the holiday season and now, so can you.

Note: Stay away from 'cranberry juice cocktail' for this. Any brand of 100% unsweetened cranberry juice will work fine, says Ficke. The baked apple bitters are available online here and here.
