Interesting two-ingredient cocktails?

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.

 

This, but with Becherovka.

PBR with several heavy dashes of bitters.

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.

True rye and true bourbon wake delight like any great wine...dignify man as possessing a palate that responds to them and ennoble his soul as shimmering with the response.

Gin and bitters (Pink gin)

Campari and vermouth (Milano-Torino)

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!

QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

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.

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.
