This tastes just like the store-bought version. I make it every year, before Christmas, to give as gifts (and of course to keep some for ourselves!).
It ends up being less expensive than buying from the store AND you get to say that you made it yourself! :)
Yummy yummy yummy I have alcoholly in my belly! I actually stumbled upon this recipe while I was in the hospital getting an ovarian cyst removed...but that is neither here nor there. I got home made the Martini and well I feel as though I am walking on air. I hope you will enjoy as much as I enjoyed. Koodos to Michael Chiarello, whose recipe for Apple Martini with Sour Apple Hard Candy would have never got to you all.
This is a sweet, creamy martini style sipper. Patron XO Cafe is a coffee flavored liquor made with tequila. Really quite tasty. I got a bottle as a gift from a wonderful friend and have been trying out some different drinks. The original recipe called for half and half but I find that too heavy most of the time and I enjoyed it better with milk. Don't leave off the cinnamon sugar, it really adds to the flavor of the drink. (***** Zaar wouldn't let me just call it Patron XO Cafe so I had to call it coffee flavored tequila.) Cheers!!!
This wonderful drink actually makes you look forward to the cooler weather. And it's great at Thanksgiving or Christmas in lieu of mulled wine, etc. Garnish this warming drink with lemon slices and a cinnamon stick.
