Pour all ingredients into a large cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a large cocktail/martini glass (8+ ounces) with a salt rim. Add two olives on a spear, and serve.

No real mexican drink has any mix, use lime juice only. Increase sprite to 1 part and splash of olive juice.
Not without olive juice

Not a real "Mexican Martini" without the splash of olive juice and I agree about the mix. Tequila must be of excellent quality too. This drink is very popular in many AUSTIN restaurants and bars.
Add some spice

Use olives stuffed with jalapenos.
Had to see what was in 'em

Just put one oz orange juice, otherwise it's too orangy.

Stop at tequila and you got the perfect mexican martini.

I'm from austin..... and let me tell you, the best drink here is the mexican martini. Don't add sweet and sour, and keep it real: use lime for sour and use very liitle orange for sweet...go all natural.
LOVE THESE! But...

Chuys has the best Mexican martinis! This one is ok, I think you have to play a little with the mixtures....and jalapeno stuffed olives and olive juice....

Flores has a pretty mean Mexican Martini as does Carlos N Charlies out on Lake Travis in Austin.

Trudy's (North-South-or close to U.T.) have the best mexican martinis hands down! Limit 2.

They have a two drink limit, but they allow smoking indoors and also serve my favorite drink, the Mexican martini.

I went to Baby A's in Austin and they had the awesomist Mexican Martini. It was delicious.
Next time I'm there I will try it at the other places you all mention.

This place is hidden on pond springs between anderson mill and mcneil, in cedar park. They are very strong and they use the tall metal mixers and they are full to the rim. Screw the glass drop a straw in the mixer and your good to go.
I bought some mixers for 99 cents ea at garden ridge so my house is the new place to go.
Just go to austin

Stop the nonsense people...

Anyone whos actually been around town in austin knows trudy's has the best mexican martinis.... chuys has great food but martini is way too bitter... all other places that try to copy trudys end up with overly sour/bitter margaritas.... gotta go to trudys.

The other places in Austin just don't compare.
posted by Drew in the ATX @ 05:51PM, 12/24/07
2-1/2 ounces top-shelf tequila
1-1/2 ounces Cointreau or Grand Marnier or 3/4 ounce of each
1 ounce fresh orange juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
2 ounces S&S Sweet & Sour
ATX has the best everything!

I love Jardin, they do have great mexican martinis. They are an authentic Mexican Restaurant, so they know what they are doing. I live right by it, which comes in handy after drinking there, I could walk home!
posted by Priscilla @ 11:15PM, 1/03/08
...it didn't live up to it's image. Chuy's has the best in town in my opinion...then again, guess it really depends on the bartender doesn't it?
Better than Trudys

I love Trudy's mexican martinis, but I must say 219 West's Mexican Martinis are WAAAYYYYY better.
