cocktail tuesday: mexican martini

okay, party people. this cocktail tuesday thing is become a regular around here!

today, melis and i made something REALLY awesome. a mexican martini (extra dirty) with BLOOD ORANGES.

oh my word.

here's the recipe, so you can enjoy this treat, too:

3 ounces tequila (i recommend a lighter one)
2 ounces cointreau (or grand mariner)
1.5 ounces lime juice
3 ounces of orange juice (we fresh squeezed all our juices. it's the BEST way.)
1.5 ounces olive brine
spalsh or two of sprite

shake together over ice and pour into your salted martini glass. top with at least five green olives.



thanks for reading!
