Choosing Mixers for Cocktails: Types of Cocktail Mixers - Lassou Blog

Mixers are alcohol-free beverages that are used in making cocktails and drinks. Their aim is to add some unique flavour to the drinks and, of course, to reduce the alcohol level.

There are a great variety of mixers which can make your cocktail sweeter, more bitter, sour, savoury, etc. Some other mixers are used simply to change the colour of your cocktail. To cut it short, mixers are important ingredients of all cocktails and you definitely need some for your home bar.
