A winter scene featuring a rum-based cocktail in an elegant glass. The cocktail is a deep amber color, garnished with a twist of orange peel and a cinnamon stick, adding a festive touch. The glass rests on a wooden bar counter, which is decorated with a scattering of fresh snow and pine needles. Behind the bar, a large window shows a picturesque winter scene with snow-covered trees and gently falling snowflakes. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with soft lighting reflecting off the glass and illuminating the rich colors of the drink.
