No Vegas holiday season would be complete without hearty doses of fabulous cocktail parties and stiff drinks. Satisfying both, Rhumbar bartender Marissa Carbaugh presents the Spiced Apple Jack Mojito ($49)—best served by the punch bowl.

Carbaugh was inspired to create a libation for festive get-togethers where most of the work is done ahead of time, ensuring fuss-free entertaining. The Spiced Apple Jack Mojito unfolds in layers of belly-warming Montecristo rum and Applejack brandy, with gorgeous seasonal notes of apple cider, cinnamon and star anise. Mix up a batch the night before your next bash. Then just grab a ladle and start celebrating.
