Simple Summer Cocktails

With what could be the hottest 4th of July weekend on record looming for Atlanta, many will spend the weekend indoors celebrating Independence Day à la Will Smith.  For those brave enough to venture into the heat - or for those who prefer a stiff drink while those planet-destroying aliens are getting their butts kicked - a couple of recent articles might make the task of getting intoxicated (responsibly, of course) a bit easier.

The New York Times recently ran two pieces on summer cocktails made with just three ingredients.  The first batch came from professional chefs and so-called mixologists.  The second group came from readers.  Both articles provide plenty to choose from, and though I make a mean Pimm's Cup (about six ingredients, give or take), my favorite summer drink has just one ingredient: beer.
