I was first introduced to the Mexican Martini at Trudy's in Austin, Texas.

Since then, I've been a die hard fan of the Margarita's more complex big sister, plus I adore that it comes garnished with olives instead of limes. Top that off with the fact that it's served straight up and is accompanied by an almost-full shaker, and you've got a drink made in heaven.

Special thanks to friend edbrannan for his own personal recipe and hand modeling.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Tequila - Use a good silver tequila
  • 1 1/2 oz. Orange Liqueur (i,e. Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
  • 2 oz. Margarita mix (opt. Use for a sweeter finish, otherwise omit)
  • 1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 oz. Orange Juice
  • 1 splash Sprite
  • Ice
  • Jalapeno stuffed olives!

Step 2: Measure

Into a cocktail shaker, measure tequila and orange liqueur.

Step 3: Lime It Up

Roll lime firmly under your palm, or microwave it for 30 seconds to release more juice.

Squeeze lime into shaker.

Step 4: Shake

Add orange juice and ice, and shake.

Top off shaker with a splash of Sprite (or other lemon-lime soda).

Step 5: Pour

Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with three olives.

Serve with shaker.

Enjoy responsibly!
I Love Trudy's Mexican Martini. Thanks for the awesome Ible.<br /> <br />
Trudy's!!!&nbsp; I love their migas enchiladas.<br />
<p>I originally made this for my non-gin drinking girlfriend (hence no standard Martini). I've found I love these myself (but def. skip the &quot;Margarita Mix&quot; - a drink of this pedigree needs to prepackaged mix type stuff in it!)</p>
Great instructable!<br /> This ithe &quot;original&quot; margarita..&nbsp; not the oeversweet and frothy concotion usually drunk in not very mexican places. <br /> ;)<br /> Tequila (silver)<br /> Cointerau (triple sec)<br /> Lime juice<br /> salt rimmed &quot;margarita&quot; glass (martini)<br /> flaked ice and a shaker <br />
&nbsp;This is also known as a &quot;Black Whip&quot; in some parts. I've been bartending for around 5 years and that is what it's known as around here in the Houston/Galveston area. &nbsp;Personally I'd prefer a nice snifter of Grand Marnier by itself. Very Nicely done instructable.
Loose definition of martini but hey looks like it will taste like fun. There was a sushi joint in PDX that had a saketini. Chef Obi drank a lot of them.<br /> <br /> Gin or vodka, nice sake, cucumber slice peeled or partly peeled. Somehow the cucumber releases its flavor creating a beautiful infusion. So very simple a cocktail the martini. Try this version! Then........<br /> <br /> Cucumber soap for the hungover from saketini instructable.<br /> <br /> Thanks-<br />
Martini? Just because it is served in a Martini style glass doesn't mean it is one. Where is the Gin???<br />
Mexican martini...so a real margarita? <br />
Is this non-alcoholic?<br />
<em>Ingredients:<br /> </em> <ul class="curly"> <li><em>2 oz. Tequila - Use a good silver tequila</em></li> <li><em>1 1/2 oz. Orange Liqueur (i,e. Cointreau or Grand Marnier)</em></li> </ul> <br /> I'll let you decide for yourself whether or not 3.5 oz of liquor is non-alcoholic or not.<br />
most definitely not lol<br />
I dont believe its not an alcoholic drink if it has TEQUILA &amp; orange LIQUEUR, but well maybe somewhere in this world, those are not considered as alcohol.<br />
I imagine this tastes very good. I like Plymouth Gin and a dash of Vermouth, shaken over ice.<br /> <br /> L<br />
I like the lime rolling tip. Thanks!&nbsp;:D<br />
