Cocktail Inspiration:

During a hot summer day sometimes to keep you going you need a cafesito, a small coffee, after a long of work sometimes you need to treat yourself to drink? If you are; then treat yourself to a cafesito Azul!!! A cafesito azul is my inspired drink by the hard working blue collard person who works all day to provide to their family. Using baby blue whiskey that has the amazing tasting notes of melted butter and caramel corn with some toasted bread that would go along perfect with the coffee notes from Kaluah and freshly grated coffee.
