The Kentucky Tar came from sitting at the bar on an admin shift, dreaming about the months to come and the seasonal cakes that arise with them. The two that came straight to mind were Black Velvet and the Black Forest cake, that's always passed around Christmas night. Rich coffee with a chocolate and cherry tart backbone brings that immense dessert sensation I searched for. Buffalo Trace is a homage to the whiskey that has created my career. Tepache for a complex tiki style clash with coffee.
