FINKA Table & Tap is no stranger to pushing the envelope in the cocktail and culinary world. Chef Eileen Andrade took a chance at, what seems like, the edge of Miami. The move was a success and locals flock to FINKA for extraordinary food and cocktails.
As local patrons tried fresh cocktails and bites, the bar became a neighborhood gem and the cocktail menu, always a hit. We have always been big fans of FINKA and are happy to see another incredible cocktail menu. We love this menu with lots of spice, herbs and tropical flavors. Plenty of great food pairings as well. Cocktails were ideated by Chef Eileen Andrade and Bar Manager Alexander Aportela.
Here are our favorites:
SPICE SPICE BABY
Hornitos Plata Tequila/Firewater Bitters/Fresh Lime Juice/Pineapple Juice/Florida Fresh Egg Whites/Spicy Cilantro Syrup
Spirited Miami’s (SM) take: We love the texture coming from the egg while the spicy cilantro syrup gives it a perfect herbaceous kick against the agave. Lime and pineapple take this tropical sipper to another level. If you love a good Margarita, you’ll love this.
Japanese Whisky Toki/Fresh Lime Juice/Fresh Ginger Juice/Coconut Cream/Charcoal Orgeat Syrup/ Q Kola
SM’s Take: Very complex while letting the delicate Japanese Whisky shine. This is your upscale whisky & cola reimagined. Coconut and ginger are best friends in this cocktail. The color comes from the charcoal of course which gives it a mysterious hue.
DRANK U, NEXT
Fifty Pounds Gin/Fresh Lemon Juice/Lavender Bitters/Orange Blossom Honey/Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic
SM’s Take: We love the gin and lavender together in this cocktail, really elevates the botanicals while not being too floral. The tonic adds some bitter and the orange blossom honey just the right amount of balance.
TIKI, DO YOU LOVE ME?
Reyka Vodka/Tiki Bitters/Fresh Lemon Juice/Fresh Pineapple Juice/Pomegranate Syrup/Q Grapefruit Soda
SM’s Take: A refreshing blend of tropical flavors that make this a perfect Miami cocktail. The grapefruit soda are perfect with the pomegranate while the vodka lets all the flavors shine.
