My New Favorite Shot: Patron Black

Loading ... Loading ...

Let’s talk about doing shots. There is nothing like hammering down an intoxicating thimbleful of your favorite alcohol with a group of friends. A shot will take you to the next plateau and bring about that familiar cloudiness we all cherish. What else can make a gremlin desirable, transform a dirty porcelain bowl into a pillow or turn an inconspicuous location into a urinal? Now a shot doesn’t have to be an exercise in alcoholism, it can also be a tasty treat!

For me I’ve always hated hard liquor shots. Rum, Rye, Vodka, Gin, Grappa… Gross! Tequila is the exception, especially a fine Petron, lemon preferred. It is really the only hard liquor I can withstand, never mind actually desire.

As for the less ‘manly’ spirits, I used to enjoy a good Jagermeister. Maybe there was a night of excess I can’t recall but today that stuff just tastes like Buckley’s Cough Medicine to me – ‘Tastes bad but it works.’. I’ve had quite a bit of Southern Comfort in my day and i can still force a few down but the sweetness just screams migraine-style hangover. As a SoCo alternative I don’t mind the similar but smoother Disaronno.

Now onto the Petron Black coffee liqueur. This tequila based shot still sits at 35% alcohol so it definately packs a punch. When you first down the chilled black liquid you feel the shotgun blast warming head rush you normally expect from Tequila but with a delightful coffee aftertaste. Instead of having to neutralize your pallet by chugging a beer, you are going to want to savour the flavor of this decadent alcohol. With such a unique taste I certainly wouldn’t want to overdo this shot, especially with its expensive price tag but for now order me up another round.

What is your favorite shot?

    That’s great to hear! We held off buying this over the holiday because it seemed like an unusual taste combination. We’ll definitely give it a “shot” now!

  2. Berry Says:

    I love patron silver… and Jager.. I dont know why I love jager so much.. because when you first taste it it tastes like cough medicine lol but you get hooked on it

  3. Very Evolved Says:

    @Sam
    I did the same thing – seems too odd to try. Might be worth a go though – I’m a big coffee fan.

  4. Nashville Plumbers Says:

    I don’t know if I could agree to just taking a shot of something that has the aftertaste of coffee, that might make me have to drink down a beer instead of wanting to take all the taste in. But yeah, my personal favorite is still and will be: Jagerbomb.

  5. indian call center Says:

    i know that if you will take heavy alcohol then harmful our body

  6. Dubai Hotel Says:

    What’s your favorite mixed drink or shot?

    a mojito or an amaretto sour
    black cherry effen vodka (if i want it mixed…i’ll have it with tonic)

  7. Roy Says:

    I have to agree with the coffee stuff I tried it to over holidays and in eggnog you will be stumbling in 3 without knowing what hit you. do Irish car bombs count as shots? I otherwise only drink tequila when I go to my favorite Mexican restaurant.

  8. warren_noe Says:

    I wanna be a bartender since I school…the situation makes me to ignore my dream…

  9. Blogger Tutorial Says:

    hehe, yeah its sure my favorite too

  10. Cheryl Says:

    The Coffee Liquor shots I love this time of the year when it’s cold. Another favorite is Baileys with a shot of peppermint schnapps.

  11. Szenovera Says:

    Apparently very pleasant became a bartender. It’s true Joe?…I like your site, very niche topic.

  12. Hypnotize someone Says:

    I reckon being a bartender would be a good job for those that enjoy working with people and alcohol

  13. Dofollow Blogs Says:

    Tequila is only so the only shot I ever do.

  14. kris Says:

    patron is good and all, but im hooked on Le tourment Vert (absinthe)!! amazing!

  15. comedyman21 Says:

    im hooked on this drink

    1/2oz Apple Pucker
    1/2oz Sweet Sour
    Splash Cranberry Juice
    - Shake well and strain into rocks glass

  16. comedyman21 Says:

    im hooked on this drink

    POISON APPLE MARTINI
    Easily batched for the mini carafe bottles
    1oz Le Tourment Absinthe
    1/2oz Apple Pucker
    1/2oz Sweet Sour
    Splash Cranberry Juice
    - Shake well and strain into rocks glass

  17. Chelle Says:

    Well, my days of taking shots are long over but the only ones I liked before were either Captain Morgan or Jack Daniels.

  18. Dawn Says:

    I have not done this in quite some time, seems like my youth is gone.

    The poison apple martini comedyman posted though sounds delightful, apple pucker and sweet sour! MMMM!

  19. shakshi Says:

    are u a real bartender ??

  20. Tom Says:

    That sounds brilliant. I love Tequila based shots.

    Thanks
    Tom

  21. derl Says:

    coffee sounds kinda gross in a shot especially if your going to be drinking other liquors though i never liked baileys either, patron and cranberry juice is one of my favorite mixed drinks and is easy to make

  22. cb Says:

    I prefer dessert wines, but when I want something strong I like Vodka Lemon Drop.

  23. shooter Says:

    give me a shot :)

  24. Womens Clarks Says:

  25. Success Coach Says:

    I was one of those guys that said “I hate tequila shots”. But now with patron so widely available they are one of my favs. I also love margaritas made with Patron Silver.

    That’s great to hear! I have to agree with the coffee stuff I tried it to over holidays and in eggnog you will be stumbling in 3 without knowing what hit you.

  27. r_shahin Says:

    You really like what you do, don’t you? It’s really rare to see someone so positive about his job. Good Luck.

  28. diana Says:

    Well the comment that you post is a nice shot, talking about the shot and coffee :-b
    for me drinking coffee every day is a nice shot because coffee has a Anti Aging Supplement…But many products that has an anti Aging..like Anti Aging Products i research on /vitaminsinwater.wordpress.com/ But the best among the best shot is yout start your day with smile and end up with happiness.

    You will never succeed until you try, and if you?re afraid to fail, then there is no hope to succeed

  30. Sweaty Palms Says:

    First off, you have a beautiful site. But like you, I can usually only stand Tequila shots (not a fan of shots in general). Just found your site through Google, and wanted to say that I now in love with your blog. I just subscribed and can’t wait until your next post!

  31. Joe Bartender Says:

    Sweaty Palms,

    Thanks for the note. I also look forward to my next post :P

  32. seo company Says:

    I really wish I could get the hang of this stuff. I believe it is absolutely true, but I am somewhat…scattered. I know I would be more successful if I could just get things in order and focus! Thanks.

  33. Lorraine Says:

    I love Tequila Rose… it’s the best ever. I haven’t tried Patron Black, but from the way you describe it, i’m sure it’s great. Perhaps, one of these days then.

  34. Cointreau Noir Says:

    I concur with ComedyMan21, excellent…

  35. snocon Says:

    I love the warm fuzzy feeling after a shot of Goldschlager. Great blog, by the way!

  36. Real University Degree Says:

    Re Lorraine,

    Make sure it is the original one :) )

  37. The Nooge Says:

    You know what shot I used to really like, Jekyll & Hyde…I don’t think they make that anymore, but the 2 color shot was pretty cool, and the layers were a nice change (it started off burning, but then the red (cherry) soothed it all away with a nice flavor).

    As for Patron, I’m not sure you can really go wrong with any Patron shot…

  38. ink cartridges Says:

    Thank you for the info. it looks like a great place to start!

  39. Bloco de Concreto Says:

    I am sure that bartender is the best job for someone that likes working alcohol and people..

  40. Joser Says:

    I remember my fist black patron shot, best shot I ever had. It was chilled, dark, thick, and tasted great. It is a bit pricey and not to easy to find (at least not in my area) but very well worth it.

  41. Acai Juice Says:

    Gonna have to try this. Thanks!

    -Jeff

  42. Jocuri Says:

    Like Kris said patron is good and all, but im hooked on Le tourment Vert (absinthe)!! amazing! How many can you do ?

  43. Agnus Says:

    I love to see a blog on patron black, very interesting to read it even. But after watched this post I’m thinking to create a on my own.

  44. techworlds.net Says:

    Hello. I like this too

  46. domene Says:

    1/2 vodka
    few drops of lemon juice?
    ;)

  47. Chat Says:

    I wanna be a bartender since I school…the situation makes me to ignore my dream…

  48. builder wire Says:

    Hmm. Does it have the distinct tequila flavor then settles to coffee?
    I’m def. going to have to try this tonight.
    Also, have you tried the new vodka by Patron? I can never remember the name.

  49. Jesse Says:

    I’m not of the mixes i just prefer the actual taste of the stuff i drink. So just Tequila for me :)

  50. Widmaer Says:

    Man ….reading your post simply reminds me of my good old twenties :) ) Perhaps Im bound to try this Patron Black

  51. Rose from FineCraftGuild dot com Says:

    Oh, please don’t call me a whimp… I’m a very busy mom with limited energy at the end of the day, ie. at party times….

    I used to drink alcohol, but these days it take away my last little bit of energy…. and I can ill-afford that.

    Sooo, I want to ask you if you could device a TASTY non-alcoholic or low alcoholic version of a straight up? ??!!

    This way, I won’t feel so left out at fun parties….
    Thank you in advance,

    Rose

    Thanks, banget

  54. fuadi Says:

    yes, i like to :)

  55. Prescription sunglasses Says:

    I prefer dessert wines………..

  56. Rachel Says:

    There’s nothing wrong with “less manly drinks,” aka girly drinks, although I agree that Jagermeister is nasty. I’m a fan of the dirty girl scout or pineapple upside down cake when it comes to shots.

  57. Bob Sloan Says:

    Tequila and coffee! not the obvious mixture, cannot really imagine the taste. Clean tequila shots with salt and lemon will always get the party started, but the patron sounds interesting.

    what the hell, someone send me the real link, i have a locked iphone it needs to be activated. I used simpleiphoneunlock.net My iPhone is now unlocked now!

  59. The Skeptic Says:

    I love Milagro or Olmeca, it’s my favorite tequilla

  60. Canvas Paintings Says:

    Yes, some hard liquor shots are hard to do. However I hate when you go somewhere and order a shot, but instead they give you a half cup full of liquor and call it a shot when its really like 4..

  61. Approach Women Says:

    I buy this kind of stuff in holidays at a poker night :) IT is great.

  62. mp3deryasi.net Says:

  65. porno Says:

    I don’t worry about it as Google

  66. Jayson Says:

    I used to pound jager too, but those were the good old days. I’ll have to give Patron black a shot, but it doesn’t sound like something that’s going to be tried twice.

  67. ingilizce kursu Says:

    I love patron silver :D

  68. How To Talk To Women Says:

    Patron is the da bomb…. I remember when i got my first job out of college I got a rack of lamb and shots and shots and shots of Patron!

  72. Wayne Window Cleaning Says:

    PATRON ROCKS! For some reason it is the most fun drink out there in my book.

  73. Marketing, Technology, Business News Says:

    This sounds very interesting. I’ll definitely have to give it a try!

  74. pua Says:

    One of my favorite shots! Great to do with a large group of girls.

  75. shaun Says:

    First of all, before you write about a product, you should learn how to spell it. Just a thought…

  76. Green Times Says:

    I love Jaegger too ! Especially JaeggerBombs :) Will try this Patron Black soon !

  77. etortoise Says:

    Funny that so many prefer Patron. It’s produced by Paul Mitchell the hair guy. It’s not even available in Mexico where it definitely would not be anywhere near the top. There are so many tequilas out there that taste soooo much better. I would recommend for people to start discovering actual great tasting tequilas that may have not poured so much $$ into marketing in order to sell a name. After all that is all you are paying for when you order Patron…My favorites include Tequila Alquimia Anejo (USDA Organic) and Don Eduardo…hard to find but worth the chase!

  78. call answering service Says:

    Can’t beat a shot of black sambuca, that’ll kick start your night (usually into a messy one though ha). Failing that get some flaming drambuies down you.

  79. living room decoration Says:

    vodka some times and i like coffee with beer will have good taste for me

  86. David Says:

    I love patron silver

  87. hanah Says:

    The good guys over at Patron Spirits are banking that spirits drinkers want to take their coffee flavored drinks with the same kind of variety as their coffees. Nobody walks into a Starbucks and expects the coffee to be sweetened. Some want it with milk. Some want it black. Some will want it sweetened. Some may also prefer pure, clean coffee flavors, while others like some unusual twists to tantalize the tongue.The aromatic and flavor differences between Patron XO and any other coffee flavored drink in the liquor store is quite dramatic, and just as there are folks who take their coffee black, there are folks who will appreciate the unusual drinking experience that Patron XO brings to the bar.

  94. Golf Equipment Reviews Says:

    This is your favorite really? I haven’t been able to get hooked on it. I am a tequila drinker though, but this really just isn’t my style.. not sure why. I have heard great things about it, but haven’t been able to jump on the train.

  95. Biplab Mondal Says:

    Thanks for this type of interesting article. Though drinking alcohol is harmful for health, sometimes taking coffee with little alcohol is interesting to me.

  96. Emi Says:

    My favourite shot is also TEQUILA with lemon + salt. In French, it is called TEQUILA FRAPPEE. But I like also B52, it is whisky liquor (Bailey’s) + Coffee liquor (Kahlua) and the original thing is that the shot is flambéed! That is so gorgeous.
