After my foray at Blue Dragon, I made my way over to No. 9 Park for a nightcap or two. There, I spoke with bartender Tyler Wang about the barista-bartender event that he helped to put together, and we began to talk about the other coffee-spirit combinations that he fell in love with. One in particular was coffee and Campari which he showcased first with the aroma of coffee and second with a coffee syrup. In the first instance, he crafted a Flip that began with a coffee aroma from the grated coffee bean garnish. On the tongue, a creamy caramel sip led into a smoky swallow that shared the Campari flavors and the Cynar's earthy bitterness.
