GREENWICH VILLAGE — Whiskey-and-cocktail bar Analogue is debuting a new fall menu, replete with spicy and nutty specialties and custom barrel-aged negronis and Manhattans.
The new mixed drinks are a collaboration by the West Eighth Street watering hole's bar team, led by new Head Bartender artender Zack Berger, formerly of Jacob's Pickles.
The three barrel-aged cocktails include a Manhattan aged for 27 days in a new oak barrel for $19 and two negronis, one aged for 18 days, also in a new oak barrel and also for $19, and one aged for 23 days in a barrel previously used for Manhattans, for $21.
The new specialty cocktails include the fiery tequila-and-mezcal Guernica (above) for $14, named for the famous Pablo Picasso painting and spiced with chipotle powder and a housemade black and green peppercorn rum tincture, and the Non-Commissioned Officer (below), made with bourbon, amaro nonino and grappa-based liqueur infused with alpine herbs for $19.
Another new drink, Thy Neighbor's Wife (below), is a riff on a classic daquiri, spiked with Velvet Falernum and Chartreuse, for $14.
And the Velveteen Rabbit (below), features Remy Martin 1738 cognac, Nux Alpina walnut liqueur, housemade toasted hazelnut orgeat, lemon, egg white, whiskey barrel aged bitters and crushed hazelnuts, for $18.
Analogue's specialty is whiskey, and this fall has five new spirit flights on offer, including a whiskey-and-wine flight featuring whiskeys kept in wine casks formerly used for Sauternes, sherry, madeira and port.
