Approve/improve my Christmas cocktail ideas, please

I'd like to offer 2 cocktails to lure my wine drinking friends away from the grape but I'm not a super experienced mixologist. I have a doz friends coming so the recipes need to be pretty simple but festive.

For one I thought I'd go with dark rum, spiced cider, pineapple juice and a slice of orange as a garnish. For the second vodka, raspberry puree, a splash of club soda (or 7-up?) for fizz and a skewer of raspberries as garnish. I've tested and they both are quite good.

I have a well-stocked bar and bitters, Rose's, etc. if you think I could improve upon the above without getting too complicated. Thank you!
