Recipe courtesy of Saveur
1/2 cup Patrón XO Dark Cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
6 egg yolks
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Whisk together sugar, salt, and egg yolks in a 4-quart saucepan until smooth. Stir in cream and milk, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon, about 4 minutes.
Pour mixture through a fine strainer into a medium bowl and whisk in Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa and vanilla. Refrigerate until chilled. Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a resealable plastic container and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours. Makes 1 quart.
