Mixed Drink
Mixed drinks come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and they may be either alcoholic or non-alcoholic.

A mixed drink is a beverage in which two or more ingredients are mixed. Some contain liquor, others are non-alcoholic. A "spirit and mixer" is any combination of one spirit with one non-alcoholic component, such as gin and tonic, whereas a "cocktail" generally comprises three or more ingredients.
