Drink Recipes: Indulge In A “Sweet Dreams” Or “Minty Cocoa” With Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa

If you happen to be a bit on the fence about Patron’s latest addition, Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa, then I’m sure these drink recipes will push you right off that fence. They’re pretty delicious looking, but be forewarned if you don’t have a sweet tooth then I may have to put you back on that fence. My personal favorite among these three Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa recipes is hands down the “Banana Split.” For crying out loud it’s called the “Banana Split” and any time a cocktail involves bananas and chocolate I’m all in. But feel free to choose your own favorite out of the bunch. Oh and if you need a little more motivation, Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa will retail for only $24.95 so it’s a spirit that’s quite easy on your wallet.
