Who doesn’t love a good easy cocktail? I have rounded up 36 of my best 3 ingredient or less cocktails! That’s right only 3 ingredients! Everything from rum, to whiskey, to gin and even some fun sparkling wine cocktails!
So guess who didn’t make a new cocktail this week? Or even remake an old one?
This week I was a little more focused on cooking, so I went with super easy, super familiar cocktails.
Then, I thought, hey, what if I do a roundup of 3 ingredients (or less) cocktails? Would I have enough to do a roundup?
Um…yes…I had 36. And if you are reading this some time in the future, there are probably even more.
Here’s the criteria – I didn’t count garnishes, unless they were something unusual like blueberries or mint leaves. I did count simple syrup and bitters.
3 Ingredient Bourbon Cocktails
Let’s start with bourbon, shall we.
There are classics like The Old Pal Cocktail, The Manhattan, an Old Fashioned, a Boulevardier, a Horse’s Neck, and Mint Julep. Then there is a riff on a classic, with the Mango Habanero Whiskey Sour.
3 Ingredient Vodka Cocktails
It doesn’t get much easier than a vodka martini! I’ve got you covered with some delicious martinis – Easy Espresso Martini, Chocolate Coffee Martini, Blood Orange Martini, East Wing Martini, and even a Peppermint Martini!
3 Ingredient Rum Cocktails
A few classic easy rum cocktails for you – Cuba Libre, Classic Frozen Daiquiri and a Honeysuckle Cocktail.
3 Ingredient Gin Cocktails
My easy go to cocktail of choice is a gin and tonic. They were my first “grown up” cocktail that I ever ordered and I still love them all these many years later!
Today, I’ve got a collection of easy gin recipes. Classics like a Bees Knees and a Hanky Panky. A couple of Negroni variations – a White Negroni and a Frozen Negroni. Some sparkling variations – a Sloe Gin Collins and a Midori Gin and Tonic.
3 Ingredient Sparkling Cocktails
Easy sparkling cocktails are a no brainer! You want fun and bubbles and you want it easy!
We have a riff on a Negroni – a Negroni Sbagliato. A couple fun brunch (or any time) cocktails – a Grapefruit Mimosa and a French 77. And one of my favorites – an Aperol Spritz.
2 Ingredient Vodka Cocktails
The only thing better than a 3 ingredient cocktail is a two ingredient cocktail!
Some of our favorite vodka cocktails have only two ingredients – A Spicy Moscow Mule, a Raspberry Vodka Tonic, a Cape Codder Cocktail, a Black Russian and a Greyhound.
Easy 2 Ingredient Cocktails
This last group of two ingredient cocktails is a mix of rum cocktails – a Rumchata and a Dark and Stormy. A Créme de Violette Sparkling Cocktail, a Fernet and Coke and a Spicy Cucumber Martini.
Last is a Boozy Vietnamese Iced Coffee which actually has 3 ingredients, but didn’t fit in any of the 3 ingredient categories!
Whew! There you have it, a collection of easy cocktail recipes!!
The big question is which one are you going to try first?!
