Like most spiked coffee drinks, the Café Royal is simple and uses only one spirit to compliment fresh-brewed, black coffee. This recipe uses a special liqueur, Patron XO Cafe, a unique blend of tequila and coffee essence. This rich coffee liqueur is drier and lacks the sweetness of its common counterparts and in this case, transforms your average cup of java into a spectacular experience.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 ounce Patron XO Cafe
  • 8 to 10 ounces coffee (hot, black)
  • Garnish: whipped cream
  • Garnish: cocoa powder

How to Make It

  1. In a heated coffee mug add Patrón XO Café.
  2. Fill to within 1 inch with coffee.
  3. Top with freshly whipped cream.
  4. Dust with cocoa powder.
