For a girl who hardly ever drinks, a craving for a Mexican Martini sure hit me like a ton of bricks. If you've never had a Mexican Martini, think of a dirty margarita, a salty-sweet combination of citrus-y flavors mixed with Spanish olives. Mmmm Deliciousness.
I googled a recipe and quickly realized I didn't have all the makes for a traditional one so I do what I always do, put a "whatever I've got on hand" spin on it.
Here's how it went:
The Kitchen Witch's Easy Mexican Martini
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1/2 oz. Sweetened Lime Juice (I used Rose's brand)
3 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix
1-1/2 oz. Tequila (I use Jose Cuervo)
1/2 oz. Orange Liquor (I used Paula's Texas Orange)
Splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice
Splash of Olive Juice
3 Pimento stuffed Spanish olives
Use less tequila if you like. I felt a buzz off of just a few sips. Then again, that's coming from a girl who almost never drinks!
