Since my Tequila tolerance is at all-time low before a visit to ATX. I decided it was time time to take matters into my own hands and do a little solo daytime drinking. Hey no flipping shame in that:) and also sharing my favorite drink of choice.
The Mexican Martini. It’s Austin original and if you ask for it anymore where else... most folks have no idea what your talking about. I know I have stumped all Minneapolis Bartenders with it:) But, it’s pretty simple and here is the recipe I have been graced with via my Dear friend Tari another ATX original.
Abundantly Serves 1.
3 ounces of Tequila. (I prefer gold)
1 1/2 ounces of Cointreau or Triple Sec
1 1/2 ounces of fresh lime Juice.
1/2 ounces of green-olive brine from the jar.
A big splash of orange juice.
Olives 2-3 or 5 if you are me.
Shake it all up in a iced filled shaker and the strain into a traditional Martini glass rimmed with Salt. Then garnish with a repurposed cool cocktail stick of olives from a local bar. I used one from @psychosuzis and make sure your off of work😂 Enjoy!
