Original Dry Martini

A complex, multi-faceted cocktail is a wonderful thing, but on a particularly hot or lazy day, we want something potent and delicious, without having to clutter up the kitchen counter with a half-dozen ingredients. With no obscure ingredients or time-consuming prep, these 20 cocktails call for a maximum of 3 ingredients (plus an optional garnish, here and there), meaning they're virtually zero-effort: the perfect recipe for relaxation.
