A New Take on the Tequila Shot

It may sound strange, but the folks at Patrón decided to mix coffee and tequila together in their new Patrón XO Café premium liqueur. When I tried it, it slid down my throat so easily I wondered if there was, in fact, tequila present. The answer is: You better believe it. While other coffee-flavored liqueurs hover at around 50 proof, Patrón is a 70-proof libation. It’s less sweet and drier than many coffee liqueurs, and tasty enough to swig straight from the bottle; or, for a more civilized approach, use it in CHOW’s Drunken Affogato.

Patrón XO Café, $24.99
