We’ve been talking about tequila this month, and I felt like today was a good time to bring in a different kind of tequila to try — coffee tequila.

A few years ago, a friend introduced me to Patrón’s line of tequilas called XO Cafe.

If you like coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua, you’ll love this smooth, sweet coffee tequila.

It is high-proof, meaning it has a high alcohol content. The flavor offers distinct notes of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. You can sip it on its own, or you can mix it into cocktails like a Coffee Old-Fashioned or a White Russian.

Or, you can spike a classic milkshake!

Milkshakes are such a big treat for me. I usually can’t finish the whole thing, but I just cannot turn down a coffee milkshake. (Or a Boozy Coffee Kahlua Coke Float.)

And I definitely couldn’t turn down a coffee tequila milkshake. This one is creamy and filled with coffee goodness.

It has three kind of coffee flavors — coffee ice cream, ground coffee beans and coffee tequila.

It would make a fabulous dessert after dinner, or you could make it for a snack or just whenever you crave a milkshake and coffee. (If you’re like me, that’s probably all the time.)

The coffee tequila is also fabulous mixed into coffee drinks or just drizzled over ice cream.

Feel free to use your favorite coffee ice cream and your favorite coffee grounds. For the topping, add a few coffee beans, or better yet, chocolate-covered espresso beans.

And if needed, feel free to use vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream. Either one would be delicious with the strong flavor of the coffee liqueur.
