What is a mixer? A mixer is anything you put in a drink, an alcoholic beverage to cut the alcohol, to add different flavors, to make it bigger, whatever. So common mixers are pineapple juice, any sort of juice, grapefruit juice, probably the most common mixer is just orange juice. Also you've got milk. Milk is very common, although some people think milk and alcohol don't mix too well in your stomach. This goes in things like White Russians and Mud Slides. There are some mixers that you use in moderation like grenadine. Very sweet stuff. Lime juice, essential in just about any Margarita. And on your guns in most bars you've got things like Coke, you know Diet Coke even more popular these days. All sorts of sodas, tonic water is included in there. Ginger Ale. Some people just add club soda to drinks, if they just like the flavor of the alcohol and want it a little diluted. And water would fit in that same category. Also, cranberry juice along with orange juice is probably the most common mixer. And of course you can combine mixers in any way that tasted good to you.
