West 8th

West 8th cocktail with cucumber, mint, vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and club soda

The West 8th is a smooth-sipping riff on the Southside cocktail, and is one of the original house cocktails at Analogue in New York. Bringing cucumber to the mix heightens the focus on fresh botanical flavors, and the sparkling water (club soda) keeps it light.

Analogue’s recipe calls for vodka, but it’s also fantastic with gin – especially a cucumberesque gin like Hendrick’s.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the mint and cucumber in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients (except sparkling water) and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass and top with the sparkling water.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
