Three-Ingredient Cocktails, Yes, Please!

Friday, June 24, 2011

Did you see the New York Times article about three-ingredient summer cocktails? I was thrilled to read it because everything sounded delicious and do-able. Limiting bartenders to just a few ingredients (plus staples like seltzer, citrus and simple syrup) means that these are drinks you might actually make. I'm thinking Friday night might call for a test drive of the Guadalajara Sour. What do you think? Do you have a favorite summer cocktail?

Guadalajara Sour
from the New York Times

1 3/4 ounces blanco tequila
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce chilled rosé.

Combine the tequila, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker, fill with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled rocks glass over fresh ice. Hold a spoon with its back side facing up on the surface of the drink and slowly pour the rosé over it.

Yield: 1 drink.
