18 Amazing Cocktails That Require Only TWO Ingredients

 

The Paloma

The Paloma

A nice break from the everyday margarita, Mexico’s most beloved cocktail, the Paloma, is made by mixing equal parts (1/4 cup) of tequila with grapefruit-flavored soda (such as Fresca or Jarritos). Serve it on the rocks with a lime wedge—salted rim optional.

An easy favorite with a delicious pairing of spicy notes, a whiskey ginger is a classic ginger ale highball made with rye whiskey and ginger ale. Just fill a highball glass with ice and add 1.5 ounces of rye. Then fill with the glass with ginger ale.

A staple of Basque culture, the kalimotxo is an easy twist on sangria, made with equal parts dry red wine and Coca-Cola poured over ice. You can dress it up with a squeeze of lemon or orange, but purists might say those additions are even too fussy. Overdid it last night? Kalimotxos make quite the restorative hangover cure, too.

The Greyhound

The Greyhound

A Don Draper favorite, this refreshing Mad Men-era cocktail is made with vodka and grapefruit juice. Just fill a rocks glass with ice, pour in 2 ounces of vodka and 5 ounces of grapefruit juice, and stir well. Garnish with a grapefruit peel if you so desire. Want to get fancy? Add 1/2 ounce of rosemary syrup and a rosemary sprig for an herbal touch.

The Martini

The Martini

The most classic cocktail of all, the martini, is made with two simple ingredients—gin and vermouth. The proportion of the gin to vermouth, however, is a variable that many discerning drinkers choose to play with. A two-to-one ratio is common, but four-to-one and even five-to-one are also popular. And of course, you can choose to garnish with olives if you please, or mix in a splash of olive brine to make “a dirty martini.”

To make this classic two-to-one martini, pour the gin and vermouth into a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon or orange peel twist.
