Best Drink for Cinco De Mayo

May 1, 2013

I know what you're thinking... the best drink for Cinco is obviously a margarita. Nope! Although I always love a good strong margarita, the best drink is always the Mexican Martini!

It's my absolute favorite alcoholic beverage & it's somewhat hard to find outside of Austin, but easy to make!

1/2 cup ice cube
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger silver tequila
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger Cointreau
2 teaspoons Grand Marnier liqueur
2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers freshly
squeezed lime juice
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger freshly
squeezed orange juice
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger freshly
squeezed lemon juice
3 pimento-stuffed green olives (optional)
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
