Acapulco (NY Bartender's Guide version)

Who says you can't use egg whites in a tiki drink. This Acapulco version is a light rum and lime cocktail that demands a tiki mug. The egg makes for a frothy daiquiri mouthfeel.

Plantation 3 Stars rum is a blend of light rums from Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad. It is complex with grassy and sugarcane notes, not just alcoholic fire. By itself, or a little sugar dissolved in the glass, it is delightful for sipping on ice. I could see doing a clear Old Fashioned cocktail with 3 Stars, for sure.
  • 2 oz. light rum (Plantation 3 Stars used)
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • egg white
  • mint sprig
Combine all ingredients except mint in a shaker and shake without ice until the egg white is frothy. Add ice and shake again until chilled. Pour into a tiki mug or highball glass almost full of fresh ice. Garnish with mint sprig.
