Mexican martini ingredients include tequila (we recommend Sauza Hornitos), fresh lime, orange liquor (recommended is Cointreau), sweet n sour soda of your choice, and olive juice. along with your one part Texas and a splash of onery, which is all you!
The first cocktail party was in St. Louis, Missouri in 1917 for a group of fifty and became an instant hit. Even though Texas does have cocktail parties, as a whole, we are more informal. Garden parties, barbeques, tapas parties, etc, are very popular.
However, we as Texans do like our cocktails. The Mexican martini recipe has been claimed by many establishments in Texas but never confirmed as to who invented it. The olive juice makes it a dirty martini. The double shot of liquor gives it a nice kick. Its popularity has been spread socially by word of mouth and social media for many years by Texas influencers, bartenders and you guessed it “Texans who like to drink”.
First of our Texas Lifestyle Influencers
Today an influencer is a person on social media who is adept at persuading followers to buy things and follow certain trends. Social media is based on people sharing and communicating in a way that makes others aware of new ideas, trends, events, and more information that other people will find interesting.
Jim Bowie designer of the Bowie knife was the first of our Texas lifestyle influencers. James ‘Jim’ carried the original Bowie knife that was based on a series of knife designs that Jim improved upon. The Bowie Knife was at least a foot-long and razor-sharp. Its lethal edge and design became legendary. Jim was a frontiersman and fighter. Bowie’s last stand at the Alamo made him famous. It was rumored he killed a dozen Mexican soldiers that day the Texians lost their lives defending our rights to be the Texans we are today. After his death, the Bowie knife was made by blacksmiths around the world. The Texas Rangers and US Marines carried versions of his famous knife. His knife is still famous today by collectors around the globe. Now that’s an influencer y’all!

Texas Lifestyle is defined by those people that have located here in our past from other parts of the world that brought a piece of their culture to meld with Texas. I use the term ‘meld with’ for a reason because no matter how ingrained their native culture was, Texas has a way of making each of its residents true Texans. For instance, most people in Texas have at least one pair of cowboy boots even though they may have never owned a pair before becoming a “Texan”.
A Texas lifestyle influencer is someone who has a unique perspective and expertise in the fashion, beauty, food, and culture of Texas. They use their influence to promote and share the best aspects of life in the Lone Star State to a broad audience through online publications, social media platforms, events, and interviews.
