New to the Mexican Martini? We’re glad you’re here… These tequila-based martinis have a bright citrus flavor and smooth tequila finish- Friends, get your shakers ready to prep some drinks.



Classic Tequila Martini

  • 2 ounces good tequila
  • .5 ounce dry vermouth
  • .5 ounce olive juice from the jar + 3 green olives on a spear
  • Ice
  • A shaker & strainer or small sieve
  • 1 lemon, for the twist

Fruity Mexican Martini

  • 2 ounces good tequila
  • .5 ounces orange liquor (Triple Sec, Cointreau, or Grand Marnier)
  • .5 ounces fresh lime juice or sub orange juice
  • Ice
  • A shaker & strainer or small sieve


  1. Add ingredients to add cocktail shaker, add ice and shake for 15-30 seconds until the shaker is frosty on the outside. Your hands and fingertips will be quite chilly! Once your cocktail is ready, pour it quickly or the ice will continue melting and water down your tequila martini!
  2. Hold a fine sieve over your glass and pour the contents of the shaker through your sieve into your glass. You don’t have to strain through a sieve– if you don’t your cocktail won’t be smooth, there will be small ice chips floating on top of your martini.
  3. Top with garnish and enjoy!


** You can chill the glass if you like. Place in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes prior to serving the drink.

**For a fruitier Mexican martini, sub orange juice in place of the lime juice or increase the amount of orange liquor to .75 or 1 ounce.
