Patron XO Cafe Liqueur

Postby TheBookPolice » Sat Apr 07, 2007 5:59 pm

Anyone tried it? I've only seen it at Woodman's West (the look I got when I asked for it at Woodman's East was priceless in the "yer askin fer what now, boah?" sort of way). It's an ingredient in a coffee "cocktail" at Charcoal Grill & Rotisserie up here in Appleton (family visit).

I'm looking for opinions before I spend $5 on a cup of coffee at a restaurant, much less $23 on a bottle at Woodies.

It is yummy. You can just drink it make drinks with it. Very high quality product.
I have seen it used in place of khalua, very different taste. Check out their recipes...

Hey, guess who's dumb! It's me. I've actually had a dessert with XO in it, in Madison. Eldorado Grill has it, and while it's not on the drinks menu by itself, it can be had as a cordial or in a cocktail they offer. And it was, in fact, quite tasty.

Just FYI, I guess. Consider this thread consummated!

Khalua is sweet tasting. Patron XO is not. It makes for a great shot (think energy shot) as it does contain caffeine. Great in drinks too. Yummy!!! Why more places don't carry it is beyond me. This town is so slow to catch on to things...
