Picture of Mexican Martini
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

Picture of 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!
I Love Trudy's Mexican Martini. Thanks for the awesome Ible.

Trudy's!!!  I love their migas enchiladas.

I originally made this for my non-gin drinking girlfriend (hence no standard Martini).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 "Margarita Mix" - a drink of this pedigree needs to prepackaged mix type stuff in it!)

 This is also known as a "Black Whip" 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.  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.

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........

Cucumber soap for the hungover from saketini instructable.

Martini? Just because it is served in a Martini style glass doesn't mean it is one. Where is the Gin???

Is this non-alcoholic?
  • 2 oz. Tequila - Use a good silver tequila
  • 1 1/2 oz. Orange Liqueur (i,e. Cointreau or Grand Marnier)

I'll let you decide for yourself whether or not 3.5 oz of liquor is non-alcoholic or not.
most definitely not lol
I dont believe its not an alcoholic drink if it has TEQUILA & orange LIQUEUR, but well maybe somewhere in this world, those are not considered as alcohol.

I imagine this tastes very good. I like Plymouth Gin and a dash of Vermouth, shaken over ice.
