Patrón has been around since 1989 and their tequilas are among the worlds best-selling expressions. It only makes sense that they would craft a triple sec to use in a Margarita. By the way, in case you’re wondering what the difference is between a triple sec and a curaçao, here’s a rule of thumb: triple sec is made from neutral spirits and curaçao is made from brandy. Either will work in a Margarita.
Patrón Citronge (80 proof)
Nose: Orange with a sort of bittersweet burnt essence.
Taste: Oddly enough, it has a tequila-like flavor right out of the gate. Somewhat funky, somewhat bitter, with the orange flavor more subdued than what I am used to.
Finish: It seems more sweet than orange, almost as if it’s an afterthought.
Overall: A perfectly decent triple sec that works in virtually every cocktail. Not a sipper on its own though.
GSN Rating: B
