The Finley is an original cocktail from the Bevvy Cocktail Lab.

This cocktail contains a cucumber-infused simple syrup that is perfect for spring and a wonderful companion to dry gin. The addition of Carpano Antica Italian Vermouth gives this drink a full bodied flavor that evokes surprising caramel tones.


2 oz Koval Dry Gin
3/4 oz Carpano Antica Formula Italian Vermouth
1/2 oz Cucumber infused simple syrup
Dash Peychaud's bitters
Lemon rind garnish
