Patrón has been steadily working to expand the traditional uses of tequila. The tequila making giant wants the spirit to be more than just a key element of a margarita. To that end, they have been introducing different tequila flavors. The latest is the Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa.
The Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is a coffee liqueur that combines high-quality Patrón Silver tequila with the distinctive taste of fresh-roasted coffee and rich chocolate. Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is dry, not sweet, like many other coffee liqueurs.
It can be served on the rocks, or used in a variety of mixers. The folks at Patrón even recommend that it be used as a topping on a dessert.
Give Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa a try if you love tequila – but are looking for something richer and a bit different.
