This shooter will almost certainly bring you back from the dead because it packs a punch. It combines the tequila shot and the espresso shot into one tiny glass and it is actually quite good. Patron XO Cafe is used here to bridge the gap between the two styles of shots with a sweetened version of the tequila-coffee combination.

This is also an excellent drink to serve on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass.

When it comes to the espresso, make sure that it is chilled before adding it to the shaker. Also, if you don't have an espresso machine, freshly brewed coffee will do in a pinch.
