5 de Mayo!

Hola! Happy Cinco de Mayo. I love this day because it's filled with memories of so many fun nights out with friends. Tonight will be no exception- Some friends & I are going on a sunset boat cruise with a picnic and of course some margaritas. In Austin people LOVE their margaritas and Mexican martinis. Until I moved back to Texas I'd never had a Mexican martini so I thought I'd share a recipe. They're very similar to a margarita but they're served in a shaker and they're typically very strong. Enjoy one today at your fiesta.

Mexican Martini (makes 1)
Recipe from here.
  • 2 fluid ounces tequila
  • 1 fluid ounce Cointreau liqueur
