This drink is inspired by the ancient mariner rhyme, red sky at night, sailors' delight, red sky at morning sailors take warning. The dark amber color of the drink and the floral and coffee flavors are reminiscent of those red skies seen on a summer night. A perfect sipper for a warm august evening.
