Patron XO Cafe
Patron XO Cafe is a brand of tequila products produced in Mexico by the Patrón Spirits Company.
Patrón tequila is offered in several different varieties: Gran Patrón Burdeos, Gran Patrón Platinum, Gran Patrón Piedra, Patrón Silver, Patrón Añejo, and Patrón Reposado. It is also available in a tequila-coffee blend known as Patrón XO Cafe, a tequila-chocolate-coffee blend known as Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa, and an orange liqueur known as Patrón Citrónge.
Patrón tequilas, like all tequilas, are made from the “Maguey” (heart or core) of the blue agave plant.
Waffle over. Whats the score on Patron Patron XO Cafe? Well, there’s no denying it’s an interesting drink. It’s pitched as a 35% ABV coffee liqueur. The bottle and the packaging are simple, but classy. It feels good, it looks good, it tastes good – it’s Tia Maria on steroids, it’s muscly, it’s punchier, and like all Patron products it’s smooth and silky.
But please. If you do buy it don’t start smashing this up with vodka the way you have to do to other girlie coffee liqueurs to make them worth the effort. This is good to go on it’s own, with ice.
