Review:

Not another Neo-Martini but an olive brine enriched Margarita.

History:

Adapted from a cocktail served at the Cedar Door Patio Bar and Grill in Austin, Texas, USA since the early 1980s after one of its bartender, named Ellen, was served a Margarita while on vacation in Matamoros, Mexico. Ellen took the idea back to the Cedar Door's owners, Gus and Diane Koerner and their longstanding bartender, Jim LeMond, created the recipe and added what would become the bar's signature cocktail to the menu.
