DIY Happy Hour: Whiskey and bubbles—could anything be more festive? We like complex, smoky Scotch in this boozy punch, brought together by cinnamon, honey and chocolate bitters; Cava will work fine in terms of sparkling wine, but if you want to use a Champagne-like French cremant (or even Champagne), we’re not going to stop you.

Over-the-Top Dessert: Pastry chef Mitchelle Dy sautes plums in Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur, to give the succulent fruit even more sweetness and a slightly boozy edge. She then lays the plums in a puff pastry crust filled with ground almonds. The tart is gorgeous, but–because Dy prepares the almonds in a food processor and uses store-bought puff pastry–it’s simple to make.
