There’s nothing like coffee to warm the soul on a cold winter’s day, and the Ahumando Café packs an added kick in the form of DeLeón™ Reposado. A marvelous twist on the classic Mexican Coffee made with tequila and Kahlua, the Ahumando Café replaces the Kahlua with pure maple syrup and a luxurious mezcal cream. The maple syrup draws out the cinnamon and butterscotch flavors of the Reposado, while the mezcal cream adds smoky depth, resulting in a warm, sweet and spicy cup of indulgence.
1 ½ oz. DeLeón™ Reposado Tequila
½ oz. maple syrup
Add DeLeón™ Reposado and maple syrup to a glass. Fill with hot coffee and top with mezcal cream. Garnish with a mint leaf.
The Spicy Serenade is DeLeón™’s love song to the daiquiri, one of the finest cocktails in modern history. DeLeón™ takes this 300-year-old Cuban classic to the next level by adding a bit of holiday comfort in the form of cinnamon and seasonal blood orange juice and swapping rum for smooth DeLeón™ Platinum. The Platinum tequila shines as its crisp agave notes blend with the rich blood orange and cinnamon, creating a bold, yet uniquely light, sip.
