This addictive newcomer from Tequila maker Patron combines coffee, chocolate and silver Tequila. It looks and smells like a dead ringer for your morning espresso. But on the palate, sweet, almost nutty agave notes emerge, fading into a creamy, caramel milk-chocolate profile, with just a dusting of espresso on the finish. This liqueur lends itself to mixing with coffee or crafting espresso martini cocktails, yet it’s polished enough to sip straight up over ice.
