Man, I need a martini after my last post! Zowie! Today I picked two off-the-wall martinis since I am in an off-the-wall mood. The first one is the Mexican Martini and it is a far cry from your normal everyday martini mixer. In fact, it has zero vodka and a pretty darn good amount of tequila. There is a restaurant in Austin, Texas (ATX=fun) called Trudy's and they are famous for their Mexican Martinis. They go a little something like this...
*2 ounces of tequila (more if your name is Ashley, Jennifer or Kelly) ;)
*1-2 ounces cointreau
*1-2 ounces Sprite or sweet and sour
*1 ounce OJ
*another sprinkle of tequila and some lime juice
(feel free to throw in the olives but I happen to DESPISE them) Yum...can you tell I like tequila?
The second pick is the Peach Kiss Martini - I have only had this one one time but it was very delicious. This one has Absolute Mandarin vodka, peach schnapps and a little splash of either grenadine or cranberry juice. I opt for grenadine any day!
