What do you get when you take a martini and substitute the gin/vodka for tequila? You get Trudy’s Mexican Martini! I was told that you only are allowed to order 2 when you are there. After trying it I can see why. I could definitely start to feel the the wonderful effects of tequila after drinking this (don’t worry I was not driving, I was taking the bus).
By the way, I should mention that the silver shaker is filled with the same concoction you see in the martini glass. I was able to refill my martini glass four times. Definitely a lot of Mexican Martini.
There are a wide range of tequilas for you to choose from, so if you have a favorite tequila I am sure Trudy’s will have you covered and you can get the Mexican Martini made with you favorite kind! It being a Martini, it was of course served with olives! It containing tequila, salt on the rim and lime are necessary! Makes for an interesting combination. I am not exactly sure what is in the Mexican Martini (other than tequila of course) but what ever it is all I know is I liked it!
Next time I am in Austin, I will have to go back to Trudy’s and have another Mexican Martini (maybe 2) and try their Tex Mex! A Mexican Martini has me thinking, what other drinks can I put a twist on?
