a good/bad mixer

a bad mixer

1. Someone who is not able to converse easily or pleasantly with other people in a social setting or event. I was worried about bringing my girlfriend out to the party—he's a bad mixer when she's around a lot people she doesn't know.
2. A non-alcoholic beverage that pairs well with a particular type of alcohol. Let that be a lesson going forward—milk is a terrible mixer with gin.
