How to make Trudy’s (like) Mexican Martini

Posted on 11 February 2010

When I lived in Austin I was exposed to Trudy’s Mexican Martini and some very fine Tex-Mex.  Trudy’s is a wonderful Tex-Mex restaurant in Austin, TX (they currently have three locations).  The original location, situated just four block north of the University of Texas campus, in my opinion has the best atmosphere.  When I left Austin I knew that I would need to find a recipe that did the drink justice, and this one is quite close.


  • 2  ounces Herradura silver tequila
  • 1 ounce Cointreau liqueur
  • 1.5  ounce Sprite
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1/2 lime, juice of
  • rim salt
  • olives
  • ice


Shake all ingredients and strain into glass rimmed with salt; add stuffed olives.

Enjoy!  If you like this, you might also like my favorite margarita recipe.
