The Texas Martini is a cocktail that typically includes tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice, with a spicy kick from jalapeño. Here's a recipe to make a perfect Texas Martini: Ingredients:
2 oz tequila
1 oz orange liqueur (such as Cointreau or Triple Sec)
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 jalapeño pepper
Salt for rimming (optional)
Lime wedges for garnish
Begin by cutting a few thin slices of jalapeño, removing the seeds if you prefer a milder flavor.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the jalapeño slices with a few ice cubes until they are well crushed.
Add the tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice to the shaker.
Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds, until the drink is well chilled.
If you like, rim the edge of a chilled martini glass with salt.
Strain the drink into the martini glass.
Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy your perfect Texas Martini!
Note: You can adjust the spiciness of the drink by adding more or fewer jalapeño slices, or by leaving out the seeds.
