The Tequini is simply a Martini made with a tequila base. Tequinis are a drier cocktail than what you may be used to for a tequila drink, but it's a fascinating concoction that allows the tequila to shine. Choose a premium blanco tequila for a dry Tequini or, if you prefer, turn it into a sweet Tequini with a premium reposado tequila and sweet vermouth.
