The Best Secret Santa and Yankee Swap Gifts We’ve Ever Gotten
These will be the most coveted presents at the party.
The Negroni, a popular Italian cocktail, has made a serious comeback in the past couple of years—and we can’t get enough of it. Traditionally, this punchy, bitter cocktail is made with equal parts gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari. But for the holidays, we took inspiration from the spices in mulled wine—star anise, cinnamon, and cloves—and used them to infuse the Campari overnight. The result is a crowd-pleasing holiday cocktail that’s very merry and quite delicious. We like to garnish each glass with a strip of orange zest and a whole star anise. Serving it over extra-large ice cubes will make it look like it came straight from the hottest cocktail bar.

Affogato with Hazelnuts and Chocolate
Affogato: An Italian coffee-based (easy!) dessert that adds a touch of elegance to a dinner party. The combination of caffeine and ice cream is the perfect way to round out your gathering. We suggest brewing some decaf, too, for guests who shy away from caffeine come dinnertime. Hazelnuts add crunch and richness to every bite, while the chocolate shavings make each serving festive. Serve the affogatos in coupe or wine glasses to make the treat feel extra special. Or, for a more casual dessert, serve in ice cream bowls or mugs. Once you experience the ice cream melting into the coffee, this will quickly become one of your favorite party tricks.
