Texas Martini

It's difficult to find a good Texas Martini. It's basically a mix of a Margarita and a Martini.
I happen to like them and I always have to tell the bartenders how to make them. I know they're not for everyone. You can also add a few slices of Jalapeños instead of the Lime Slice.

An example of a great Martini that I had in Rosemary Beach, Florida

Texas Martini

Here's what you'll need:
A Cocktail Shaker
Small Wooden Skewers for the Olives

3 oz. Tequila
1 1/2 oz. Cointreau or Triple Sec
1 1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz. Green Olive Brine from a jar of Olives
A splash of Fresh Orange Juice
Lime Wedge
4 Large Green Olives
Option: Jalapeno slices to replace the Lime.

In a Cocktail Shaker
Lime Juice
Olive Brine
Shake well and strain into a Martini Glass.
Add a splash of Orange Juice.
Add a Lime Wedge or Jalapeños.
Skewer the Olives and lay them on across the glass to serve.

Peace in the Kitchen!
