Thanks to Boris Kotyrev (I've adapted what he sent to be more minimal).

use strict;
use warnings;

use File::Slurp;
use HTTP::Request::Common qw(POST);
use LWP::UserAgent;

sub minify{
    my ($css) = @_;

    my $css_min_url = "http://localhost:80/raw";

    my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
    my $request = POST($css_min_url, [ 'input' => $css ]);
    my $css_min = $ua->request($request)->decoded_content();

    return $css_min;

print minify($css, "\n");
