Spicy and sweet has long been a staple of Mexican cuisine, and increasingly this exciting culinary trend has found its way into food and drink across the globe. Recognizing this growing enthusiasm for intense taste and flavor, Patrón Spirits has introduced Patrón XO Cafe Incendio, an innovative fiery-hot chile chocolate liqueur.
Patrón XO Cafe Incendio combines the spicy, distinctive flavor of Mexican arbol chile with the rich, decadent essence of Criollo chocolate, brought together with the crisp, smooth taste of Patrón Silver tequila.
“Patrón XO Cafe Incendio is an incredibly versatile spirit. Not only does it create interesting and inventive cocktails, just like the rest of the Patrón XO Cafe line it’s the perfect choice for celebratory occasions that call for an ultra-premium shot,” says Ed Brown, President and CEO at Patrón Spirits. “No other brand in the crowded shot market compares to the taste and quality of Patrón XO Cafe, and no other liqueur comes close to the powerfully spicy hot flavor of Patrón XO Cafe Incendio.”
The Chile de arbol is a small and slender Mexican pepper typically found in the states of Jalisco, Chihuahua and Zacatecas. Thought to be derived from the cayenne pepper, arbol chile is characterized by its smoky and spicy complex flavor, and is the main component in many hot sauces. The high-quality Criollo variety chocolate in Patrón XO Cafe Incendio is produced in Mexico’s Tabasco region.
“The word ‘incendio’ is Spanish for ‘fire,’ and that’s exactly the taste that this unique liqueur evokes.”
Perfect as a shot, or as the base for a high quality cocktail, Patrón XO Cafe Incendio is distilled at 30 percent alcohol by volume, 60 proof.
