Patrón-age...

by - Sunday, July 15, 2012

Karmin is "sipping on a Patrón just to calm my nerves, oh oh, poppin' bottles by the phone"... and Nicki raps about "the Patrón own, let's go get it on in the zone own, yes, I'm in the zone"... Even LMFAO "love Patrón; we came to party rock!"
Oh yeah, whether you're in the zone or just sipping some, Patrón seems to be the liquor of the hour, with so many recording artists proclaiming homage on the airwaves these days. So what's the big deal? Apparently, this is one popular stock. Patrón Silver tequila is touted as "the perfect ultra-premium white spirit", a light, crystal clear tequila with fresh agave aromas and hints of citrus. Bartenders love its ability to mix flawlessly into most any cocktail. With each bottle individually crafted and hand-numbered, the product line includes some impressive flavors: Gran Patrón Burdeos in a dark amber rich Bordeaux wine base with a blend of oak wood, very light agave, vanilla and fruit; the light floral and vanilla of Patrón Reposado; Patrón Añejo with caramel and smoky notes; Patrón XO Cafe of fresh coffee balanced with chocolate and vanilla; Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa a rich taste of fresh roasted coffee, rich chocolate and light tequila; and Patrón Citrónge, a premium reserve, extra fine orange liqueur.
What can you do with this besides your typical shots? Since I am a blended-drink-kinda-gal, I found some cool mixers you can try... responsibly, of course. Here they are...
