Take a Venice rooftop house, a few fabulous cocktails, free hairstyling by Los Angeles’ finest, and shake it all together. The result: The Summer Soiree with Refine Mixers.

It could not have been a more perfect afternoon: the sun shone and good company was plentiful. Refine Mixers, an all natural, zero calorie mixer paired up with Joico Hair Care and E! Entertainment’s Ashlan Gorse for an afternoon of hair styling and mixology lessons.

Bloggers, editors, and guests learned how to muddle, mix, and shake their way to a perfect summer cocktail using Refine mixers and other natural ingredients. Guests were then treated to a healthy meal provided by Gjelina to pair with their homemade cocktails while Refine Mixers founder Patrick Castles chatted about the idea behind the drink recipes, which were all “Venice themed” and under 100 calories. Downstairs, guests were able to have beachy waves or trendy braids done by Joico celebrity colorist George Papanikolas at the braid bar while they enjoyed tasty treats and drinks.

Ashlan Gorse hosted the party and even had her hair done before demonstrating the mixology lessons. We couldn't help asking about her her favorite summer trends, which included bright-colored lips, minimal makeup, mascara, and SPF tinted moisturizer to keep the skin looking fresh, dewy, and young.

The night was a great hit and everyone left with beautiful hair, goodie bags, and a few drink recipes under their belts to impress.

Here is one of our favorite cocktails that we made, perfect for your next summer soiree:

Morrison’s Mojito

-Muddle 2 rasberries and 2 blackberries
-1 part light rum
-2 parts refine all-natural, zero-calorie mojito mix
-splash of soda
-garnish with a sprig of mint and berries

Mix and enjoy.
