Until I tried, I had no idea if I would like a Spicy Mexican Martini…I promise you I am amazed at how good it is. When you try it? You’re going to completely understand what I’m talking about – the heat with the sweet/sour taste of a margarita? It’s almost indescribable! My recipe for Spicy Mexican Martini makes 1 big drink or 2 small ones. Your choice! I like to make a pitcher of them and serve them all night!

Summer Happy Hour is the PERFECT TIME to serve a Spicy Mexican Martini it really is. Sit outside on a Friday Night and put out a few fabulous snacks and enjoy. You’ll love the refreshing, fun taste of the drink and so will your friends that come over to hang out on a summer night. My favorite is to sit with my feet dangling in the pool while sipping. Perfect summer right?

Summer sipping drinks should be refreshing and fun in my world. It gives me summer attitude which I think we should all have from Memorial Day all the way until Labor Day. Fun days, fun night, fun drinks and fun times! Plus, let’s face it – having a pretty drink makes it better right? Spicy Mexican Martini meets all the requirements of a perfect summer sipper. I love it!

Want some more fun inspiration for a perfect summer cocktail? I have some really great drinks to share with you!

  2. I lived in Laos for awhile and a bar there did a tom yum martini that was to die for. This sounds like a great alternative to that.

  3. Wasn’t familiar with pepper-infused tequila, I’ll bet it adds some real ‘pop’ to the drink! Now to figure out what to wash it down with!

  4. Ooh yum, I bet that pepper tequila gives it a nice kick!!! I featured this on my blog this morning, and I’m just stopping by to pin it!
