1 oz Rum
12 oz Sherry
12 oz Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur
14 oz Fernet Branca
1 oz Half-and-half
3 ds Aztec Chocolate bitters
12 oz Water (Orange Blossom Water)

A bit more Ancho will add some heat and flavor.
History
I'm watching a favorite movie, "Christmas In Connecticut." A glance at my back bar spurred the imagination.
