Mia is a fan of the aperol sptriz for playful affairs like rooftop soirées or dining al fresco: “It’s a champagne cocktail, with a little aperol and soda water. It’s light and refreshing, so it’s an easy sipper.” Our favorite part of this delicious treat is its bright, happy hue. The orangey-red color looks lovely when topped off with an herb like thyme or rosemary. Calling this cocktail Instagram-worthy would be an understatement.

If you want to go all in on the summer theme, Mia recommends a mai tai cocktail. The spiced rum beverage will help you and your guests channel laid back island vibes. What more could you want for a warm weather celebration? We suggest whipping this up for a picnic or a boozy afternoon brunch.

Looking for something a little less peppy? Then the negroni, equal parts gin, Campari and sweet vermouth, is for you.”It’s a sipping cocktail and it’s a bit heavier,” Mia explains, but but it will certainly add a mysterious Mad Men vibe. Consider this cocktail if you seek to set a chic, upscale mood at your event.
