whisky

Here is my best explanation:

'drink' is the definition.
(whisky is a kind of drink)

'yankee's after a mixer' is the wordplay.
'yankee' becomes 'y' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.).
'after' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'a mixer' becomes 'whisk' (whisk is a kind of mixer).
'y' put after 'whisk' is 'WHISKY'.

'for' acts as a link.
