This cocktail was inspired by my recent fascination and appreciation of cachaça and my long-standing love for coffee. The scientist in me has been intrigued with the process of clarifying cocktails, and I thought this might be a unique opportunity to create a drink that had a definitive coffee flavor with a refined structure and nice aesthetics. After clarification, the drink still had a strong golden hue, so I decided to add a little blueberry liquor to add a bitter note and amber-ish color.
