Patron Spirits announces the launch of the first brand extension for the highly successful Patron XO Cafe coffee liqueur line. Available in the first quarter of 2012, the new Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoacombines high-quality Patron Silver tequila and the light essence of coffee with an extraordinary chocolate flavor to create a unique and enjoyable ultra-premium liqueur.
“Patron XO Cafe has quickly become one of the fastest-growing products in our portfolio, and the success and excitement surrounding this brand has definitely energized the coffee liqueur category overall,” said Ed Brown, President and CEO of Patron Spirits International. “When we looked at how we could build on what makes Patron XO Cafe so special, chocolate was such a natural fit,” Brown added.
Chocolate, a word that originates in Mexico’s Aztec cuisine, has been used as a drink for nearly all of its history. The high-quality Criollo variety of chocolate in Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is produced in Mexico’s Tabasco region. The coffee comes from the Mexican states of Veracruz and Chiapas.
Distilled at 60 proof, Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is characterized by its deep, dark brown color, and an aroma of fresh coffee balanced with cocoa. The taste is dry, not sweet like many other coffee liqueurs, combining the rich flavors of fresh-roasted coffee, fine chocolate and light tequila. The finish is smooth, yet dry.
“Patron XO Cafe has always been one my proudest achievements,” said Francisco Alcaraz, Patron’s master distiller who created the recipe for the entire line of Patron tequilas and liqueurs. “And, I’m very excited to present Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa, an elegant spirit with a precise, balanced blend of Patron tequila, coffee and rich chocolate that took several years to perfect.”
Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is highly versatile and delicious in any number of cocktails or after-dinner drinks. The liqueur is also enjoyable served on its own over ice, or used as a topping for ice cream and other imaginative desserts.
Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa is produced and bottled at the Hacienda del Patron distillery in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, handcrafted with the same attention to detail and quality as all Patron tequilas and liqueurs. It is available in 50ml, 375ml and 750ml sizes and packaged in the eye-catching handmade Patron XO Cafe glass bottle, a frosted version of the iconic cork-closed Patron tequila bottle. The label and outer box for Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa are accented in bold red.
Well. Hello friend
RIP Nanuet Mall. 1969-2012
Remember when the Nanuel Mall was bumpin?
When it took hours to find parking?
When you’d have to see if a family was almost done with their meal so you could grab their table when they finished?
When they extended it and had the GIGANTIC Foot Locker and the awesome WB Store with the big Bugs and Daffy out front?
When you’d go there to buy CDs from Sam Goody or hit up KB Toys?
When you’d go to see Santa?
When you could go watch a movie at the theater across the street? (And subsequently sneak into like 5 more movies that day).
Those days seem so long ago, but I grew up with that mall being my definition of a mall.
Even though Palisades is nice because it’s so big and has everything, you gotta admit, Nanuet was much prettier.
RIP Nanuet Mall. I hope “The Shops at Nanuet” turns out well. Get an Urban Outfitters there and I promise, you’re golden!

Thanks for making my transition from Jersey to Rockland that much easier.
So I had a dream where I was in an alternate timeline in Harry Potter and I thought it was really interesting. Also, keep in mind I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to Harry Potter lore.
I was traveling around the world and I end up meeting with a small group of wizards who are at the point of rebellion. A man who is willing to talk for the group say that they are angry that their group of wizards are being ignored by Dumbledore. They keep asking for more and more representation (I guess Dumbledore is the leader of a Wizard Congress or some sort).
Fast forward to when I’m the security guard at the Wizard Congress. In comes these masked men donning the colors of said wizards that are not happy. They conjure clocks all around the area counting down to 0. Panic and mayhem everywhere. I come to a realization that Dumbledore had a meeting with someone and I quickly run to his office to warn him. I quickly arrive to see Draco Malfoy, with an odd looking little girl. I then ask “That’s not a little girl is it?”. Draco smiles and the girl transforms into a huge troll (I don’t know how, maybe all you potter fans would know). My dream ends there.
