Spicy Martini Cocktail Recipe: The Green Devil

I am so crazy in love with spicy cocktails right now. During my visit to Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, I took the opportunity to ask David Ortiz, bartender and mixologist, to share with me one of his favorite spicy martini cocktail recipe. He told me about his famous Green Devil Martini.

Serrano Chile spicy martini - a spicy twist on a traditional martini. It's made using cucumber slices, chile serrano, tequila, triple sec, lime juice and ice. | livingmividaloca.com | #livingmividaloca #spicymartini #martinirecipe #spicycocktail #martinicocktail #serranococktail

The Green Devil martini cocktail was absolutely delicious. Not so spicy that it overpowers the flavors – it was smooth. If you think it’s too spicy when you make it at home,  you can adjust it to make it less spicy by fully removing the seeds and membrane from the chile.

I have since tried to recreate the recipe at home, and I’ve successfully done it. However, it’s one thing sipping on this delicious cocktail with a view of the ocean and the mountains. It’s another thing sipping it at home as I have two kids running around me screaming.
