And at the newly remodeled Alto Bar, the Alto Punch punchbowl awaits you and up to seven of your friends. It mixes Absolut Elyx vodka, coconut water and a pair of juices (grapefruit and pineapple) with Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit Bitters and agave nectar for a $150 community concoction.

Across the Strip at Bound by Salvatore at The Cromwell, world-renowned mixologist Salvatore Calabrese has crafted the World’s Oldest Martini. Comprised of Park & Tilford unfiltered New York gin dating back to the turn of the 20th century and Noilly Prat vermouth from around 1890, the cocktail equates to over 240 years of history in a single Baccarat crystal coupe glass. It’s a cocktail with a story well-deserving of its expense.
