South by Southwest music festival starts this weekend in Austin, and to toast the occasion, we're shaking up our version of a Mexican martini, inspired by Austin's signature cocktail. This margarita with a twist features an unusual ingredient: olive brine! Be on the lookout for more coverage on the scene, including a taste test of Dominique Ansel's milk-and-cookie shots.

Ingredients

  1. Kosher salt
  2. 1/2 lime, juiced, reserve rind for salt rim
  3. Ice
  4. 2 ounces silver tequila, such as Milagro
  5. 1 ounce Cointreau liqueur
  6. 1 ounce orange juice
  7. 1/2 ounce olive brine
  8. 1-2 ounces Sprite
  9. 1 jalapeño-stuffed olive

Directions

  1. Place salt in a plastic bowl wide enough to fit the rim of a martini glass. Rub the rim of the glass with a lime wedge. Then dip the glass into the bowl of salt to coat the rim. Set glass aside.
  2. To an ice-filled cocktail shaker, add tequila, Cointreau, orange juice, lime juice, and olive brine. Shake until thoroughly chilled. Pour into a martini glass, top off with Sprite, and garnish with jalapeño-stuffed olives.
