Let’s set a scene for you. It’s a chilly night and you’re home with a new found…friend. What you need is a tipple that will warm both body and soul, especially if it’s your turn to play bartender. Fortunately, tequila gurus Patrón have added a touch of heat to their acclaimed XO tequila coffee liqueur, a drop that’s always popular with the ladies.
Spicy and sweet has long been staples of Mexican cuisine, and increasingly the bold flavours of Latin cooking have found their way behind the mahogany, so the new Patrón XO Cafe Incendio, an innovative fiery-hot chile chocolate liqueur, should really come as no surprise.
Combining the spicy, distinctive flavor of Mexican arbol chile a small and slender Mexican pepper typically found in the states of Jalisco, Chihuahua and Zacatecas, and characterized by its smoky and spicy complex flavor, with the rich, decadent essence of Criollo chocolate from the Tabasco region, and the crisp, smooth taste of Patrón Silver tequila, this innovative new handcrafted liqueur, bottled at 30% ABV, is great over ice or as a subtle kick to classic espresso martinis. www.patrontequila.com/xocafe
