GIFT: Jose Cuervo Cinge, Yummy Cinnamon Tequila

Mmm, mmm, good. Photo courtesy Jose


Jose Cuervo Cinge, also known as Jose Cuervo Especial Cinnamon (that’s sure to be confusing, but why ask why), is a new expression that’s not even on the website yet.

It is, however, in the stores—and that’s a good thing.

The new flavored tequila is a cinnamon-infused, 70 proof version of Cuervo Especial Silver. There are other “natural flavors,” but if they told us they’d have to kill us.

Cinge means “sting” and the ads we’ve seen show a menacing scorpion (is there any other kind?) crawling across a bar toward a shot of tequila.

But the experience is more “Cosmopolitan” magazine than “American Cowboy.” There’s a soft but vibrant cinnamon nose and flavor. It’s not a burning cinnamon experience like Red Hots candy.

Yet the brand’s copy calls it “a spicy and fiery shot of cinnamon.” Hmmm; perhaps our bottle was from a different batch.


Our Cinge was seductive, and we love it. For $16.99 a bottle, OMG: Last-minute gift problems solved!

We received a bottle from Jose Cuervo along with some cocktail recipes, but it’s heaven just drinking Cinge straight.

Or add it to cider, coffee, tea or a toddy—there’s no need to drag out the cocktail shaker.
