Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa makes a great holiday gift for mom


SILVER SPRING, Md., December 11, 2014 — Mom deserves a special Holiday drink and the Patron I Said So Martini, with its almond and coffee flavors is perfect for Christmas brunch.

Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa has combined Criollo chocolate with a light touch of coffee and mixed that with Patrón Silver. The result is a sweet, velvety liqueur that is smooth and a pleasure to drink. Despite being a coffee liqueur, Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa features the other flavors ahead of the coffee, so even those who are not a fan of coffee flavored beverages will find enjoyment here.
