Austin Margarita (aka Mexican Martini)

Austin Margarita (aka Mexican Martini)

Lisawas 70

"After living in Austin Texas for 10 years, my husband and I perfected the perfect margarita. The secret to success is fresh fruit juice only and it doesn't use any pre-made mixes! Don't skimp and try buying juice. Squeeze it yourself or you won't get the best taste! If you are a real olive lover, add pimento stuffed olives and call it a 'Mexican martini'...delicious! and you won't confuse yours with anyone else's if you add 3 olives on a stirrer. :)"

  • Cook's Note
  • When serving a group, I will make a mixer of the fruit juices using 10 limes, 5 oranges, and 5 lemons. Just keep the juice chilled in a pitcher, and pour it into the tequila to taste depending on how strong you like it.

WOW! These are soo good, I juiced all the fruit ahead of time and it was a breeze to whip these up and the taste is fabulous!! Although I did switch the name to Alamo Martinis..LOL Thanks for sharing!! What a difference the fresh juice makes, I will never go pre-mixed again!! Will be making these often =)


Austin is my second home and this drink brings me back!!! I skip the olives but add an orange or lemon slice. These are the best!! Perfect for the summer!


I did not care for this recipe...olives were not a good addition
