A well-known alcoholic beverage option in Europe that's still new to many Americans, apéritifs have the flavor and freshness of a cocktail with an alcohol content that's stronger than wine BUT half the amount of hard liquor. It's best served either on the rocks or paired with your favorite mixers. "Like organic food, alcohol can be made with products that come from responsible, healthy farms. It can be made through clean production practices, with organic sugar, in minimal amounts," co-founder and CEO of Haus, Helena Price Hambrech, tells R29. "Haus exists because we wanted to see an alcohol brand that actually represented the values of our generation. It didn’t exist, so we created it ourselves."
Haus offers a membership subscription so you can enjoy two bottles every month, free shipping, and more for $72. If you're not into that much commitment, don't fret: the brand also offers everything from a try-at-home sampler kit to individual bottles.

This is such a crowd-pleaser when I had some friends over for a summer dinner party. It's such a fun and festive drink. Dare I say, "healthy"? Healthy for the heart and soul! It'll be my new favorite gift to friends and clients!
It is a very refreshing drink. I am so glad my daughter turned me on to your delicious aperitif’s. I've only tried the two so far, but they will be in our cabinet at all times.
I'm not a spicy person; I'm very sensitive to heat of any kind in my food or drinks, and I try to avoid it at all costs. I was nervous to try it for that reason, it even has 'spiced' in the name. Luckily for me, this truly had the perfect amount of subtle spice, the warm-you-up-after-a-day-outside-in-the-snow kind of feeling. Perfect. I could not recommend this enough for any and all holiday parties.
By far one of the best tasting drinks I’ve had. Mixed with plain seltzer, it was a perfect refreshing drink to sip on by the campfire, and again while floating in the lake. I’m completely sold!
Tasty, great by itself or with a mixer. Will definitely order again. Big hit at the party.
