It’s about time that I revisited this recipe for Mexican martini! I am celebrating the launch of my first cookbook and this is the perfect cocktail for any good spicy salsa! Essentially a Mexican martini is a close cousin to Margarita! Lol! A hint of spicy and salty from those queen jalapeño stuffed olives.
Make It Fancy!
Martini glass is not necessary, but it sure makes it look dolled up and fancy! This recipe reminds me so much of visiting my family in Austin before Covid. I am not doing much traveling these days. I miss it. My cookbook, Mexican Salsa, is due to begin shipping on April 1st for those who preordered. 10% off will be available only until March 28, 2022. Promo code SONIA10. I am so grateful and excited!

Besides chips and salsa, this martini is excellent with birria tacos and carne asada! The chamoy tamarind paste can be found in most Mexican grocery stores or online. If you find the small key limes, the flavor is so delicious! Regular limes are good too if you can’t find the key limes.
