Tequila love potions

Say “I love you” with Patron and Partida tequilas.

Be a nut and mix up a Nutty Cocoa. Amaretto goes hand-in-hand with coffee and chocolate, and makes this one nutty cocktail:

Nutty Cocoa
2 ounces Patron XO Café Dark Cocoa
½ ounce amaretto liqueur
1 ounce cream

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with almond shavings.

For a frosty buzz, mix up the dessert-worthy Cocoa Butter:

Cocoa Butter
2 ounces Patron XO Café Dark Cocoa
1 ounce butterscotch liqueur
1 large scoop of vanilla ice cream

Blend ingredients in a blender. Pour into a hurricane-style glass. Drizzle with butterscotch liqueur.

Patron XO Café Dark Cocoa is sold at liquor stores throughout Tampa Bay. Visit for patrontequila.com for further information about Patron XO Café Dark Cocoa.

Tequila Partida is produced in the heart of Mexico's historic tequila region of Jalisco, with blue agave as a key ingredient. It is aged for eighteen months, in Jack Daniels American oak barrels. This thorough, extensive aging process emits a chocolate, cinnamon and butterscotch flavor explosion.

Begin your Valentine’s Day with a kiss, an Anejo Kiss:

Añejo Kiss
1 1/2 ounce Partida Añejo tequila
1/2 ounce white Creme de Cacao
1 ounce cream

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
