Honestly, when I bought it, I couldn't drink it. I love coffee and tequila, but coffee tequila was just not the same. I didn't touch it for a very long time until one day I thought to add some milk. I don't even stir it. I just let it swirl in a shot glass. It is a must have around here now, and it's very pretty! everyone I know loves it! It was good like that with the dark cocoa flavor as well. I have also paired it with Saint Brendans Irish Crème Liquor. Saint Brendans is just like bailey's, but way better!
