Oh my god, he is insane! I went out the other night and a friend bought the group of us a round of Patrón shots. I should have thrown that shot right over my shoulder. Instead, I drank it. It was gross. It burned. I guess that's what tequila is supposed to do. I like my tequila mixed in margaritas not served up to taste like gasoline.
BoPo: it's similar (and in the same heat range), but not exactly the same. The tequila cuts the heat a little, and I had a White Russian right after to heal my palate (followed by a Blood Orange mojito and an Irish coffee). You'd've dug it.
