Best Way To Drown One's Sorrows

Trudy's Texas & North Stars

When we've tired of those wacky flavored margaritas but desire something in the same genre of alcohol, Trudy's satisfies our needs with its Top Shelf Mexican Martini. Although there are over 26 tequilas to choose from, we recommend ordering a martini with Cuervo 1800 and Grand Marnier for a velvety sweet taste so potent that each customer is limited to two martinis per visit. Served in a sophisticated martini glass (salted or not) accompanied by an equally spare metal shaker, this drink is perfection when topped with a generous supply of olives on cute little plastic swords.
