With Miami Art Week and Art Basel Miami Beach just beginning, Miamians have a week of parties, gallery openings, shows, and happenings to attend. Between celebrity spotting and art chatting, you'll need to unwind and refresh. There's no better way than stopping for a cocktail.

But this being Art Basel, you simply cannot just get a vodka and Coke in a plastic cup. You need to enjoy a beverage that's artistic and aesthetically pleasing. Luckily, Miami's bartenders (and some guests from out of town) have created a cadre of libations that are both beautiful to behold and delicious to drink. Here are five creations that allow you to imbibe art this week.

1. Warhol Mule at Bagatelle
Bagatelle's Warhol Mule ($17) takes the artist's most recognizable work as its muse: the Campbell's soup can. Bar manager Daniel Majarro mixes a traditional mule by adding Ketel One orange vodka and fresh strawberries and then finishing with ginger beer and lime. It's the best way to drink in art this week.

2. The Garden Punch at Bar Alter
Alter's Brad Kilgore is known for his artistic culinary interpretations, so it makes sense that the cocktails at Bar Alter are just as gorgeous. Barman David Perez's garden punch ($13) is a standout: A mixture of fresh juices and spirits are just the revival you need after scoping out Wynwood's art scene. The fact that it's served in a garden pot and garnished with an orchid makes it the most adorable drink in town.
