Mexican Martini Jose Muldoons

Ok, not a margarita, but the fresh-squeezed fruit makes this martini just as appealing. The Mexican Martini is mixed with Don Julio Anejo, Cointreau and Grand Marnier. Made with the juice of fresh-squeezed limes and oranges, it's served up in a chilled martini glass garnished with a lime or orange.
