Okay, okay: It’s not technically a Martini if it’s made with tequila. But this kicky version of the classic is well worth going against the grain for.


  • 1 1/2 ounce blanco tequila
  • 3/4 ounce sweet white (blanc) vermouth
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • Garnish: lemon twist


  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  2. Shake and double strain into a martini glass.

  3. Garnish with lemon twist.
