What We Considered
It’s never easy being the party host. You have to make the drinks, make everyone happy, and best of all— clean up. We’re here to tell you that it’s possible to take the stress out of hosting your next get together. Leave that how-to guide for cocktails to the pros - and trade it in for a party with the ‘hottest’ new drinks out there (aka on the internet).
Turns out, this hosting gig might end up being pretty sweet.
Usual Wines has poured the perfect 6.3 oz glass for you. With pre-poured bottles, you won’t have to worry about those glasses you got from Aunt Suzy in the cabinet. Usual Wines has rounded up the best sustainable wineries California has to offer and they’ve really focused on grapes with taste that won’t disappoint.
Meet Haus, the alcohol company giving us lower alcohol alternatives to hard liquors like gin and whiskey. Their farm-to-bottle drinks have no additives and use real ingredients only. You'll want to try their signature apéritif Citrus Flower (read: lemon and elderflower) and the recently launched Bitter Clove (like an old fashioned in the best possible way).
Meet Bev, the Rosé made by women in an industry inundated by men. Bev’s female founders have brought a classic fav in an easy to sip can— so you can dance the night away with no worry in sight. With light fizz, an 11.9% abv, and zero grams of sugar it looks like White Claw should be worried.
Reset your day with Recess, a hemp extract infused spritzer. Using yours truly, CBD and adaptogens, Recess is making a drink that’ll have you skipping your 2 pm coffee. It’s natural stress relief, and it tastes amazing. Looking for a more chill night with your pals? Recess is the answer.
