Analogue’s Gin and Juice

Analogue's Gin and Juice cocktail with vodka, marachino, citrus juice, and bitters

When we picked up our first bottle of lavender bitters, we figured it’d probably end up at the back of liquor cabinet along with all the other odd flavors we bought on a lark and never ended up using.

We’d only seen a few drinks that made use of the stuff, and they were all soapy, overly-perfumed garbage. But we hung on to it, and we’re glad we did – in the last few years, bartenders have turned their attentions to floral cocktails, and we’ve seen tons of amazing recipes with big, beautiful flower flavors.

Analogue’s Gin and Juice, from New York City’s Analogue bar, is probably the leader of the pack when it comes to floral cocktails we just can’t get enough of. They balance the lavender flavor with citrus and maraschino, and it’s just so delicate and ephemeral, slipping away like a dream with each sip.

You’d think a floral gin like Hendrick’s would be a shoe-in here, but we tried it and found it to be overpowering. Best to stick with a gin with a crisp, clean flavor profile – at Analogue, they use Ford’s Gin, a London Dry.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
