Emilia Clarke loves to let the good times roll with loved ones.

"As someone who travels a lot for her work, I really try to live my life to the fullest with my friends and family when I do have time," the actress, 37, tells PEOPLE as part of her partnership with Pegasus Distillerie. "Those times are incredibly precious to me. So I always love the doing of things."

Her list of go-to activities is long — and sometimes includes alcohol. (Pegasus Distillerie's portfolio include Pegasus Vodka, the Eau d'Or Liqueur and the Orion Gin, which Clarke counts as one of her favorite drinks from the brand.)

"When I'm drinking, it's because I am celebrating being with family and friends, or I'm celebrating an occasion, or whatever it is," Clarke says.

"I love hanging out in the pub, but I also love going to a comedy show or going out to an amazing restaurant," she adds, "or going to the theater or getting on a boat and going down the Thames, or going on holiday, making fun plans. Activities are always something that I love doing with my friends and family."

The locations have changed as she's aged. "I love going out with my friends, definitely. I love going to restaurants," she says. "As I've gotten older, you switch the club for a very lovely restaurant. And then with my family, it's more like when we've got a bunch of us there, so that would be at home."

One part of her hangouts that is a necessity no matter who she is spending time with, Clarke says, is having "a perfectly crafted playlist" — which she calls "a thing of wonder."

"When people first come around, you want something mellow, something chill, something with a beat, like feeling good music, but nothing too intense. And then as the night goes on, then you are kind of craving something a little bit more like, get up and go," she explains. "Then, as the night wears down, you want something really mellow and really chill."

Clarke teamed with Pegasus Distillerie to become their new Global Brand Ambassador, a role she is "really excited about." The premium organic spirits brand was founded in France but now sells bottles directly to consumers via its website. (It also has spirits distributed in New York, California and Florida.)

Pegasus Distillerie recently launched a new limited edition meteorite-infused ultra-premium vodka, aptly named Shooting Star, which Clarke teases is "delicious" and "so good."

"I just love the company," she says. "Craftsmanship is at the heart of what they do, and they care so deeply about the ingredients that are in their products and how they're made. I really value that ... as someone who enjoys a drink."
