ATHERSTONE, UK – Following the discontinuation of Patrón XO Cafe last year which lead to outrage and hundreds signing an opposition petition, UK shoppers will be happy to learn that Aldi is launching its very own alternative, El Toro Coffee Liqueur Tequila – and it costs just £15.99.
Available in stores from the 21st August, the latest addition to Aldi ’s award winning spirits line up boasts a delicious blend of coffee liqueur and tequila, with aromas of chocolate and vanilla for a smooth yet dry finish.
While no longer in production, bottles of Patrón XO Cafe are still available to buy online but come with a hefty price tag of £100. Savvy shoppers after tequila with a kick can save an incredible 85% by picking up a bottle of Aldi’s new tipple.
To create the perfect cocktail, pour the El Toro Coffee Liqueur Tequila over ice into a small, chilled tumbler and top with Irish Cream. Alternatively, give the much-loved Espresso Martini a tequila twist:
Tequila Espresso Martini
- 60ml El Toro Coffee Tequila Liqueur
- 60ml Cold black coffee
- 1 tbsp Sugar or sugar syrup (Sugar syrup made with 2:1 ratio of sugar to hot water and stirred)
- Coffee beans for garnish
- Put all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
- Shake hard, make sure sugar has dissolved and coffee has foamed.
- Strain into a martini glass.
- Top with coffee beans
Aldi’s range of Spirits is available online, via Click & Collect, and in Aldi stores nationwide now.
