Interesting two-ingredient cocktails?

Recommended Posts

Don't tell anyone I mentioned this, but I hear a favorite guzzle lately is a nice glass of cider invaded by a shot of Campari.

Whisky in a glass.

 

(actually I prefer a hand-thrown ceramic sake cup)

This, but with Becherovka.

PBR with several heavy dashes of bitters.

I'm quite fond of a Beton, too (Becherovka and tonic, which sounds nasty but is not)

Death in the Afternoon (absinthe and champagne), followed by Fernet and cola the next day (the absolute best "recovery" drink).

Becherovka + most things, honestly. 

 

Aperol and Campari Spritzes may count, though I prefer them with soda water to cut the Prosecco, and a dash of lemon to battle the sweetness.

This, but with Miller High Life.

 

ETA: Craig beat me to it.

Or even better, no Prosecco. ;)

Chilled Stolly and chilled kombu ponzu.  Especially in the heat, when your electrolytes might need a boost.  Non-alcohol version: iced water & KP.

 

And I wasn't joking about champagne (methode champenoise) spiked with scotch whisky (blend / malt).  There are lots of permutations, but where straight whisky can be challenging, champagne has a tendency to go glug-glug-glug and then you wonder where it went.  Put them together!

Rakı and water.

 

Oh and ice, does that still count as two?

I once mixed Drambuie and Ramazzotti.  It was way better than it has any right to be.

I've had that in my locale as well. A nice vacation from Fernet/Coke.

Awesome.

 

I know Gabriella Mlynarczyk at ink in LA infuses gin with kombu for her Dirty Martini, which is a similar idea.

Fino sherry and Fever Tree tonic or bitter lemon, with optional lemon bitters. A nice variation on the Andalusian Rebujito (fino and Sprite). 

 

Grapefruit juice and Cardamaro. Actually, grapefruit juice and most amari.

Only if bourbon and an ice cube counts

Black Russian - vodka and kahlua. Still my all-time favourite.

 

I do like a Brave Bull. And, no I don't count water in any of its physical states.

I second the Brave Bull. I like Black Russians just fine, but replacing the vodka with white tequila really livens it up.

 

Another fine two-ingredient drink is the French Connection—equal parts Cognac and Grand Marnier in a snifter, neat. It's good after a meal when you want something sweet, but not cloying.
