No more complicated cocktails! Here are our 6 favorite cocktails with four ingredients or less

I watch the bartender measure and shake countless elixirs together to make a magical concoction that I swear I'll try to re-create at home. But then, I get home and reality hits — there's no way I want to buy, much less measure out eight or 10 different ingredients to make a drink. The good news is that you can make excellent cocktails at home without shelling out for a bar cart's worth of liquor.
