This recipe for the best Mexican Martini in the world is from Joe Bartender, one of the best cocktail sites in the world.

seen so many Mexican Martini recipes that completely miss the boat. This is a very popular drink here in Austin, Texas and I have sampled quite a few of them. After much careful testing, I think I have perfected a pretty damn good version.

  • 2 oz. Tequila – Use a good silver tequila. The light color makes it look better.
  • 1 1/2 oz. Cointreau or Grand Marnier.
  • 2 oz. Lime Juice. Don’t use a mix for this drink. Sweet and Sour will ruin it.
  • 1 oz. Orange Juice.
  • 1 splash Sprite
  • 1 splash olive juice – or more to taste.
  • Jalapeno stuffed olives!

How To Make It:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake it and strain it into a BIG cocktail glass with a salted rim. Spear a few jalapeno stuffed olives and garnish the drink. Serve it up.

This is a really delicious drink that packs quite a punch. You can experiment until you get what you feel is the right blend of flavors. Certain people I know like it with a LOT of olive juice. That variation of the drink we call the Dirty Mexican.

But use these guidelines when experimenting:

  • Use good tequila
  • NEVER use sweet and sour
  • Jalapeno stuffed olives really pimp the drink out.

Glass: Big Cocktail glass
