Drink of the Day: Acapulco

September 3, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Here’s another sipper for you for today.  A nice combination cocktail that is surprisingly smooth, considering that it is mostly liquor.  However, the lime juice and sour mix do a very good job taking the bite out of the booze and bring out the attributes each ingredient has to offer.  This is surely one you will want to take your time enjoying.

Tequila and rum are on the main stage in this beverage.  The rum seems to do a great job of taming the tequila, while the triple sec brings both of them together nicely.  Adding only a splash of lime juice and sour mix and you have yourself today’s Drink of the Day.  A perfect introduction to a mid-week gathering.  Have a great Wednesday!
