The Acapulco is the Mexican version of a Caribbean cocktail. Named after the once famous beach in Mexico, The Acapulco is a refreshing and slightly tart cocktail. Honestly I didn’t really know how to classify this one. Is it a highball? It has all the proportions of a highball. Is it more like a tiki? Its’ got all the tiki juices in it. I had to pick something so I went with Tiki.
