A weeknight cocktail at home after work can seem so very civilized. And so much the better if its refreshing elegance is reflected in its elemental simplicity.
In 3-Ingredient Cocktails, Robert Simonson, who writes for The New York Times, GQ, Saveur, Whisky Advocate, Food & Wine, and other worthy publications, offers a clear and concise collection of more than sixty stylish drinks. Some are well-known classics—who would want to overlook the Old Fashioned?—and others are contemporary concoctions by Simonson or contributions from other well-known cocktail pros. Each recipe includes interesting notes on drink origin, adaptations, and options. Some favorites (so far): Trinidad Old-Fashioned, Audrey Saunder's Little Italy, Ti' Punch, and Brandy Alexander.
