Drinks in Milan between 17:00-20:00 are usually served with the formula "Aperitivo", which means you pay for the drink and you get free food in a buffet. Milan is well known for the abundance of the buffet, so much that in some places it is a real dinner. The flip side of the coin is that you typically pay the same in spite of the type of drink you buy, whether it's a cocktail, a wine glass, or a non-alcoholic drink, you can expect to pay between 5/6 euros in student areas, to 12/13 in the most central locations.
Keep in mind that sitting might make your beverage more expensive, especially in tourist places where you pay the services extra. Drinking a caffè standing at the bar is the usual behavior for locals. Watch out for prices "al banco" (at the counter) and "al tavolo" (at a table).
