Acapulco cocktail is a drink from Mexico, with and easy home preparation that blends rum and tequila with the citrus flavours of orange. It is usually served in a tall glass or a cocktail glass with the rim previously frosted. Its orange coloured appearance reminds of the sunset from the Acapulco beaches and invites to take a moment in order to give up to enjoyment.
