This bubbly and bitter drink evokes a cozy evening with friends. The amaro and gin take nicely to the lemon juice in a shaker, and when topped with Prosecco (I used Ruffino Prosecco for its fruity and floral notes), this cocktail feels like just the right amount of festive for everything from holiday parties to birthday celebrations. —Samantha Weiss Hills

I love oysters and unfussy sandwiches.
