Patrón XO Cafe

Blending the “essence of coffee” (according to the Patrón website) with their premium tequila is what gives XO Cafe the edge. At 70 proof (35% alcohol by volume) it is higher in alcohol than most coffee liqueurs, and the result is a coffee liqueur that is dry and full of real, rich coffee flavor.

So, what can you do with Patrón XO Cafe?

  • Sip it. It’s great on its own! (Shake with ice and strain into a glass if you want a cooler sip.)
  • Add it to your favorite coffee or espresso drink. It will add flavors of coffee and tequila and should work in any latte, mocha, or cappucino.
  • Mix it with more tequila! Substitute XO Cafe for any other coffee-flavored liqueur. You may want to stay on the conservative side when you mix. XO Cafe’s flavor is a lot stronger than some of the other liqueurs. Great tequila and coffee drinks abound: Brave Bull, Tequila Paraiso, Lunch Lady’s Libation, Iguana (shot), or Killing a Cockroach (shot).
  • Mix it with vodka and milk for a terrific White Russian.
  • Things go better with Coca-Cola. Get a tall glass and fill it with ice. Pour about an ounce of Patrón Silver Tequila and an ounce of Patrón XO Cafe. Fill the rest of the glass with coke. Squeeze a bit of lime juice over the top. Voilà!
  • Ice cream! Pour Patrón XO Cafe over vanilla, espresso, chocolate, chocolate chip, or java chip ice cream. You can also blend it into a milk shake.
