Looking for the Perfect Tropical Sipper? Try an Acapulco

Warm-weather cocktails don’t get much better than the Acapulco, a blend of aged tequila, white rum, and three kinds of fruit juice. Invented in the vacation destination of the same name, 1500 miles south of San Diego on Mexico’s Pacific coast, this tipple is tailor-made for white sand, blue sky, and rolling waves.
