With its smooth flavor and light body, Patrón has established itself as an elite tequila. It delivers full blue agave flavor with a more refined and accessible touch. Patrón XO Cafe builds on that reputation. Clean, fruity Patrón Silver is infused with dark coffee to create a coffee liqueur like no other. While most are sweetened, schnapps-like spirits 40-proof or less, Patrón's 70-proof coffee version is dry and never cloying.
Have a whiff. You'll pick up vanilla and dark cocoa along with fresh-ground coffee and tropical fruits. Your first sip will have the pleasant bite of pure espresso with lingering agave, pineapple and citrus zest. The finish is soft with the warmth of the underlying tequila gradually overtaking the coffee.
How can you drink it? Since it lacks the sugariness of typical coffee liqueurs, Patrón XO Cafe is great alone in a snifter or on the rocks. Put a shot of espresso in a steel shaker and toss it into your ice bin for a few minutes. It will cool without diluting. Then, add a shot of XO Cafe and a splash of cream. Shake that and strain it into a chilled martini glass. Finish with a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
