A toast to all the Mother’s!

1 oz. Blanco Tequila

1.5 oz. Ruby red grapefruit

The Mexican martini was born in the late 70’s when a bartender at Cedar Door Restaurant in Austin, was served a margarita in a martini glass on a trip to Mexico. She returned to Texas raving about the drink, and Cedar Door created its own version, adding in olives.The Mexican martini has since become a Tex-Mex staple and the signature drink of Austin. It comes in many forms: some bartenders are certain it should be served in a shaker, while others serve the drink as a classic martini, but with tequila instead of gin or vodka. Some don’t make the drink without adding olive brine or muddling olives and peppers.This cocktail is hard to find outside of Austin, but is featured at the newly opened authentic Tex-Mex cantina El Original in New York City. If you’d like to make this drink at home, the recipe is below.

Mexican Martini Recipe developed by Garrett Flanagan for El Original
· 3 oz. Your Favorite Tequila
· 1.5 oz. Lime Juice
· 1.5 oz. Simple Syrup
· 0.5 oz. Olive Juice
Shake with ice, pour into martini glass, garnish with olives and enjoy!
