Make a Splash
If you could bottle a winter evening by the fire, it would look and taste like our anisette liqueur. Coriander and fennel seeds and star anise turn into a spicy digest if that you can enjoy on its own or mixed with water for a lighter drink. Our recipe yields eight 8-ounce bottles (about six servings each). Seal them with our label (go to marthastewart.com/holiday handbook for the recipe and template), and revelers will salute you when they pop them open. THE DETAILS: Restaurantware Grolschstyle swing-top glass bottles, 8.5 oz., $ 42 for 10, amazon.com.
