Hosting has never felt more intimate since the pandemic. Moments of laughter, storytelling, and togetherness are the times worth raising a glass. Hosting, atōst style, is as simple as gathering friends and creating unforgettable memories-over some incredible apéritifs.

If you’re looking for some inspiration before you host your next happy hour, or should we say ‘aperitivo hour', look no further. Here’s how to host, atōst style!

  1. Drinks 

Let’s be honest, drinks put the ‘happy’ in happy hour. Everyone is enjoying something different these days, so it’s important to have a variety of options for your guests to choose from. Cue atōst: the American Apéritif. 

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. Lighter in alcohol and less sweet and bitter than traditional apéritifs. It's as easy on the palate as it is on the eyes. With fresh, natural flavors, it will be everyone's drink of choice after their first sip!

  • Versatile 

Enjoy atōst 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 drink inspo, visit the atōst recipes page. You can’t beat a good cocktail!

  • Lighter & All-Natural 

Freshness you can see, smell, & taste. We use nothing but real fruits, herbs & botanicals to create our delicious blends. Oh, and we're corn, wheat, & grain-free. atōst is crafted so you can enjoy tonight and feel good tomorrow!

  1. Tasty Bites 

We’re all about keeping it simple! Make less work for yourself, and your dishwasher, by focusing on tapas you can prepare beforehand or put together quickly. Serve bite-sized appetizers, that don’t require utensils, so guests can skip the formalities. Plus, cocktails and a charcuterie board never disappoint.

  1. Atmosphere (aka vibes)

It should be a fun and stress-free event for everyone, including you. With light bites and various apéritifs to choose from, your aperitivo hour should be – keyword – simple. Turn on your favorite Spotify playlist, set out a board game or two, and put your hosting worries aside. With this golden hour set up, there are no details to worry about as long as everyone has an apéritif in hand.

  1. Gathering

atōst is all about getting together to enjoy your favorite drink. We created atōst to provide an apéritif that’s perfect for wine and spirit lovers alike. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the evening knowing everyone will love a simple atōst spritz.

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