With the cold coming on in earnest now, we decided to make some drinks here that remind us of better weather. Today's drink, the Acapulco, turned out to be exactly what we needed to warm us up and ease the pain.
I know you'll enjoy this drink. It's smooth, strong and not too sweet, and the egg white makes the drink almost artistically foamy. Better still, the Acapulco doesn't require any exotic ingredients--any reasonably stocked liquor cabinet will have everything you'll need.
It's been a little while since we've returned to our monumental effort to work our way through the entire Mr. Boston Official Bartender's Guide, but today's drink was a real incentive to get back to working on this goal!
1 1/2 ounces rum
1 1/2 Tablespoon Triple Sec
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1 egg white
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker, shake well and strain into a small glass over ice cubes. Add a mint sprig for garnish.
