Acapulco Cocktail

Acapulco Cocktail is a refreshing cocktail perfect for sipping under the sun. Fresh lime juice gives this drink a tropical vibe.

Nothing says tropical cocktail like rum and fresh fruit juices. The Acapulco cocktail is light, tasty and perfect for sipping by the pool or beach.

Egg Whites

Some people get grossed out at the thought of egg whites in a drink. I get it! It does sound gross. Trust me, your drink won’t taste like eggs. What the egg protein provides is a nice texture and silky foam. The egg white unravels in the cocktail shaker during the shaking process and turns into little bubbles. So shake it up really good!

Cointreu vs. Triple Sec

Either liquor works. I prefer Triple Sec because it is sweeter than the Cointreu. My husband prefers the Cointreu because he doesn’t like super sweet drinks. Sweet or no so sweet, it is your choice.
