Proof66 Notes

Jose Cuervo Cinge was first released in 2013 and is a flavored tequila. They use their mixto Plata tequila and infuse it with "cinnamon and natural flavors." The press release warns/entices "Just like its mascot, the Mexican scorpion, it’s fiery, untamed and by nature will sting." The spirit is designed as a chilled shooter.

At Proof66, we had a chance to do full, exploratory tasting of the Cinge where we decided it might work nicely in pre-mixed margarita solutions and coffee.

Proof hit it on the head. This is very much a liqueur. Thick and odd, almost like a churro soaked in tequila. It must solely exist to mix for some cocktail.

This is more properly styled a liqueur… it’s very sweet and difficult to shoot. We’re not convinced that cinnamon and agave are working well together. As a shooter, no. But in trials, we find it flavors a frozen slushy drink very nicely and we find that it works splendidly well in coffee—anyone who drinks vodka and energy drinks should immediately switch to Cinge and coffee. This could be the greatest marriage of coffee and spirits we’ve seen in a while.
