What are the best simple cocktails that don't include sugar or syrups or carbs?

I'd like to have more drinks in my can-drink mental list, and more that I can keep the ingredients on hand for in my home, that adhere to my low-carb diet. I would really love some two-ingredient drink recipes, three ingredients if it's something great. (Go figure, I love cooking elaborately but I don't love mixing complicated drinks.)
My go-to's for now are rum and diet cola, or whiskey and diet ginger ale. I've tried mixing a variety of spirits into a variety of sugar-free sodas and seltzers and they're mostly terrible. I tend to like rum and whiskey/bourbon the most, but I will try pretty much anything in the search for the elusive Great Drink. Perhaps vodka would be a better mixer because of its more neutral flavor.
I especially would love something summery and light that I can drink on my porch.
What else can I try?
