Mexican Martini

The Mexican Martini is about as Mexican as my big toe. This cocktail was invented and popularised in Austin, Texas, although its name might suggest it comes from Mexico. Some say that it is a.variation of the classic Martini, but it really isn’t. The Mexican Martini has way more uncommon with a Margarita than any Martini I know.
