The Acapulco is the Mexican version of a Caribbean 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.
Regardless, This drink is delicious and it is named after Mexicos’ once great beach city that everyone famous was going to in the 1940s and 1950s. Acapulco in the 2000s is a VERY different story.
