Amaro adds rich, complex flavor and sweetness to this tangy cranberry cocktail. Be sure to use a less-sweet tonic water, like Q Tonic, for the best balance.

This refined rum cocktail from Chicago's Sepia hides a festive tiki core. A burnt-sugar backbone from the aged Guatemalan rum is deepened with the sweet, nutty, baking-spice notes of falernum, a syrup typically made from almond, ginger, clove and lime that's a staple of many a Caribbean bar. Calvados, the French apple brandy, lends a telltale flavor of the season.
