Mexican Martinez

Mexican Martinez

There are at least a million martini recipe variations of the classic gin, vermouth, and green olive garnished drink. You can have it dry, on the rocks, dirty, or stirred (not shaken). You can make a martini with vodka in lieu of the gin. So we thought, “why not a tequila martini”? The Martinez is a bold blend of Reposado tequila, sweet vermouth, orange bitters, and Luxardo Maraschino. The only reason James Bond didn’t order his signature drink this way is that it hadn’t yet been invented.
