Coffee itself is technically a berry, so pairing it with another just makes sense. While a berry syrup might have overpowered the other ingredients, a berry-infused gastrique added extra depth. A base of dark rum introduced stone fruit and mild spices, while Aperol brings rounding orange and a gentle bitter to balance the whole thing nicely.
