We tasted a few different varieties, but the one that stuck out the most for me is the XO Café Patron, it’s a coffee flavored Tequila. At first, I was kind of wait…I don’t really enjoy the taste of coffee…but I thought I have to try this…
Sticking to the theme of Tequila, I thought why not share with you my new discovery…and I am sure many have already discovered it…but it’s new to me…
A few weeks ago, we did a wine tasting, and along with that we did a few whiskeys…and some new Tequilas…and I want to focus on the Tequila for now…I was absolutely amazed.
As a young party animal…Tequila was the shot of choice…as I grew older, I started really enjoying Tequila in more cocktail kind of drinks…then Stoney brought his magical box of tasting goodies, and introduced me to the world of Tequila.
It comes in a really sexy looking bottle…the colour…wow…its this deep intense, purple shade…it looks like velvet in a bottle…it is drunk as if you were enjoying a fine cognac. You sip it slowly…its so smooth, and the velvet texture is projected into the taste…wow..if you pair it with a great cigar…a match made in heaven…what a great way to spend your wintery evening, in front of a fire enjoying the XO Café Tequila.
XO Cafe is produced and blended in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Jalisco is known for producing the finest tequila in the world.The XO Cafe is created to very exact specifications by a small family owned distillery. The owners are known to produce some of the highest quality Agave tequilas of their type. The Product XO Cafe originated from a very unique blend of XO Fine tequila and pure natural coffee essence. XO Cafe is produced at 70 proof, it was conceived to be a coffee tequila more than an overly sweet coffee liqueur. The product is blended to be “dry” not sweet as with most low proof coffee liqueurs. The higher proof brings out the flavor of the pure coffee essence and the XO Fine tequila. The sugars are kept to a minimum allowing the product to be consumed as a cocktail as well as an excellent liqueur or ingredient in gourmet cooking.
Now to the cooking side of it..wow…I can just imagine the beautiful sauces for my steaks I can make with it…maybe that should be me next adventure!
