The History Of The Acapulco Cocktail.
I always found the Acapulco Cocktail to be a strange cocktail. Most everyone I knew said it came from Mexico, but the drink seemed very tiki-like to me and not like something that would come from Mexico. After a bit of looking around and researching, I was able to locate it in the 1972 edition of the Trader Vic’s Cocktail Guide. This appears to be the oldest known recipe for the Acapulco cocktail, and it makes sense that Trader Vic invented it. The proportions, ingredients, and exotic association scream tiki to me. This is a fantastic cocktail and one you should try.
