As we plan for smaller-scale holidays and stock up our home bars for the winter, we’re always on the lookout for something special to sip through the colder months. Haus, the wine-based aperitif brand, has given us just that with a brand new flavor: Spiced Cherry.

We’ve waxed poetic on Haus recently, and the low-ABV aperitif is only growing more popular. Spiced Cherry is a brand new fall release, made with heirloom cherries, anise seed, tellicherry pepper, cherry bark, and cocoa nibs. Think of sipping a Manhattan in a cozy bar—that’s the vibe here. Classic cocktail lovers will love it on the rocks, or with a splash of soda for something lighter.

To buy: Haus Spiced Cherry, $35 at drink.haus

At just 20% ABV, Haus’s products are slightly stronger than wine, but have significantly lower sugar content, at just two grams per ounce. It’s ideal for folks looking for something a little stronger and sippable, without having to cut yourself off too quickly or worry about lasting effects in the morning. Other flavors include the zippy Ginger Yuzu, refreshing Citrus Flower, and the classic Bitter Clove (closer to amaro).

If you’re unsure of where to start, the sampler set is a great way to try out the standard four flavors. Sign up for their membership to choose two bottles per month (free shipping, pause it anytime), or order a single bottle for $35. All can be sipped on the rocks, as a cocktail with two parts Haus one part tonic or soda, or as a spritz with one part Prosecco in the mix. We’ll be curling up on the couch with a little Spiced Cherry in the holiday times to come.
