Tequila Cazadores has announced the release of a new innovation to their portfolio of tequilas made with 100% agave: Cazadores Café. The tequila-based coffee liqueur is now available across the U.S.
Cazadores Café boasts vanilla and chocolate notes created from a balanced blend of Cazadores Blanco tequila, a richly roasted Mexican blend of coffee, and agave nectar. Designed for a variety of occasions in mind, the drink can be enjoyed with friends as a sipping shot, over ice, or in a twist on the espresso martini.
“We’re very excited to introduce Cazadores Café this summer. Following the trends we’ve seen in coffee-based cocktails and the popularity of the espresso martini, we wanted to create a tequila-based liqueur that would appeal to a wide range of cocktail enthusiasts in a new and innovative way, ” said Jay Needham, Tequila Cazadores Brand Director. “Cazadores Café is the perfect companion for get-togethers with friends as you go from daytime to nighttime, and can be enjoyed in a variety of settings, from brunch to at-home cocktails, to your favorite restaurant or bar. It’s the ideal way to get the fiesta started.”
Cazadores Café is created with Tequila Cazadores Blanco first following the traditional seven-step zero-waste process. Jimadors start by harvesting the piñas, and then extract 99% of the raw agave juice through a 24-step diffusion process rather than cooking them first. During the long fermentation process, Mozart is played to soothe the yeast and water particles to create the best possible taste for the tequila. Then, as the final step, they infuse the liquid with coffee and agave.
Ahead of National Tequila Day (July 24), Tequila Cazadores is bringing the fiesta with a private 3-day pop-up in New York City at 164 Mott Street to celebrate the launch. The Mexican-inspired Cazadores Café Cantina will run from July 21st – 23rd and will feature Mexican light bites, as well as a variety of daytime cafe beverages and nighttime cocktails. Guests of the private event will be among the first to taste the new Tequila-based coffee liqueur, and consumers 21+ can RSVP for the limited time bookable experience on Eventbrite.
Bottled at 33% ABV, Cazadores Café will be sold nationwide for $29.99 per 750ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
