Acapulco Recipe

By | Published , Last Updated on | Cocktails | No Comment

This is one of many cocktails that has changed from its original recipe over the years. To begin with, it was always rum-based and did not include any fruit juice. Nowadays, it is increasingly made with tequila, because this has become better known outside its native Mexico.


10-12 cracked ice cubes

2 measures white rum

½ measure triple sec

½ measure lime juice

1 tsp sugar syrup

1 egg white

Sprig of fresh mint, to decorate


1. Put 4-6 cracked ice cubes into a cocktail shaker.

2. Pout the rum, triple sec, lime juice and sugar syrup over the ice and add the egg white. Shake vigorously until a frost forms.

3. Half fill a chilled highball glass with cracked ice cubes and strain the cocktail over them.

4. Decorate with the mint sprig.
