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.
