The prado is one of very few classic cocktails that features tequila and egg whites. It is an original of the famed Del Prado Hotel in Mexico City, which was torn down it when experienced severe damage during the earthquake of 1985.
- For Vegans:- Relace Egg White with Aquafaba; It’s is the liquid leftover from cooked chickpeas. You can obtain it two ways: (1) Drain a can of chickpeas and reserve the liquid. Or, (2) Cook your own chickpeas and reserve the leftover cooking liquid. The second method is less reliable, in my opinion, because the aquafaba can be too thin and you may need to cook it down, making it more time-consuming.
