Similar to the classic Margarita, the Montezuma cocktail has a long history to its making. The drink's origins are traced back to Mexico in the 1930s, when it was served at a restaurant in Acapulco. It is unclear who invented the drink but it is believed that American GIs stationed in Mexico mixed up ingredients they found at hand and created this tasty tropical libation. The modern recipe includes lime juice, cream of coconut, dark rum, sloe gin and grenadine.
This cocktail is sweet in taste, with notes of melon and citrus fruits. It is very aromatic because it contains several citrus flavors, but it doesn't have an overpowering smell or flavor.
