How To Host, atōst Style

As bona fide hosts, we love any excuse to get friends together! An after-work happy hour is a perfect solution to squeezing in some socializing. You may be used to the lure of happy hour at restaurants and breweries, but there’s no reason you can’t take inspiration from the idea and host your own at home. 

If you’re looking for some inspiration before you host the next happy hour, look no further. Here’s how to host, atōst style without a hitch!

1. Drinks 

Let’s be honest, drinks put the ‘happy’ in happy hour. Without a good selection of drinks for your guests to choose from, it might as well just be another work meeting on everyone’s schedule. Cue atōst: the American aperitivos. 

We could write a long list of reasons why atōst should be filling your bar carts for those incoming guests, but we’ve narrowed it down to just 3 things. atōst is: 

  • Enjoyable 

You read that right. Ready to sip, right out of the bottle. It's as easy on the palate as it is on the eyes. It will be everyone's drink of choice once they have their first sip!

  • Versatile 

Enjoy your way. Pour over ice, pair with your favorite bubbles, or mix for an elevated cocktail. Atōst has a variety of unique flavors, so there is truly something for everyone. If you need some drink inspo, visit the atōst recipes page. You can’t beat a good cocktail!

  • Better for you 

Freshness you can see, smell, & taste. We use nothing but real, natural ingredients. Oh, and we're corn, wheat, & grain-free. Who doesn’t want to have a fun night of drinking with a lot less sugar involved? Atōst is crafted so you can enjoy tonight and still feel good tomorrow, too!

2. Food 

Keep it simple! Make less work for yourself and focus on things you can prepare beforehand or put together quickly. Serve bite-sized food that doesn’t require using utensils so guests can skip the formalities. Plus, cocktails and a charcuterie board has never been a bad idea.

3. Atmosphere (aka vibes)

It should be a fun and stress-free event for everyone, including you. With light bites and various apértifs to choose from, your happy hour should create be – keyword – simple. Tell Siri to play some of your favorite Spotify playlists, set out a board game or two, and set your hosting worries aside. With this happy hour set up, there are no details to worry about as long as everyone has an apértif in hand.

4. Friends

Atōst is all about getting together to enjoy your favorite drink. We created atōst to provide a drink that’s perfect for wine and spirit lovers. No need to worry about what your guests prefer, you can relax and enjoy the evening knowing everyone loves an atōst cocktail (or over ice, it’s that good). 


Your happy hour will be so fun, you’ll want to make it a weekly (or daily) thing. Keep the vibes high, and the glasses full (of atōst) the next time you host a happy hour, or any hour! Cheers!
