Austin Margarita (aka Mexican Martini)

Austin Margarita (aka Mexican Martini)

Lisawas

"After living in Austin Texas for 10 years, my husband and I perfected the perfect margarita. The secret to success is fresh fruit juice only and it doesn't use any pre-made mixes! Don't skimp and try buying juice. Squeeze it yourself or you won't get the best taste! If you are a real olive lover, add pimento stuffed olives and call it a 'Mexican martini'...delicious! and you won't confuse yours with anyone else's if you add 3 olives on a stirrer. :)"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place the ice cubes into a margarita glass. Pour in the tequila, Cointreau, and Grand Marnier. Pour in the lime juice, orange juice, and lemon juice to taste. Garnish with a pimento stuffed olive if desired

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • When serving a group, I will make a mixer of the fruit juices using 10 limes, 5 oranges, and 5 lemons. Just keep the juice chilled in a pitcher, and pour it into the tequila to taste depending on how strong you like it.

Austin is my second home and this drink brings me back!!! I skip the olives but add an orange or lemon slice. These are the best!! Perfect for the summer!

This was pretty tasty. I used tequila gold because I do not like silver, and Triple Sec in place of orange juice and Cointreau. And the olive, strangely enough, tasted really good in the drink!

I had never had a Mexican Martini until I moved to Central Texas- now that's all I order when we go out. These are great, and go down very smooth. My kids loved them when they were out for a v...

I have lived in Austin most of my life and agree this is one of the best margaritas!! I LOVE olives so I add some of the juice when mixing everything together! Also, skip OJ and use a splash of ...

This is delicious! I only used one jigger of lime and I thought it was perfect.

This was perfect, though I did use Gold (never tried Silver yet, will have to though) and because I refuse to use mixes (corn syrup, etc) this is a healthy cocktail with WHOLE foods! Loved it!

This didn't work for us and no one finished their drink. Sorry.
