How do I easily keep olive juice out of my Mexican Martini?

What is the shorthand to order a Mexican Martini without olive juice at a bar that inexplicably decided it was a good idea to add it to every Mexican Martini they make?

So, I'm in Austin, I like drinking Mexican Martini's. As far as I'm concerned, this drink should just be a Margarita up with an olive. I do not believe turning it into a Margarita into a Martini automatically implies that you want a *gag* Dirty Margarita. However, many of the more "trendy" places here in Austin add olive juice to every one they make unless you tell them not to.
So, what's the drink ordering shorthand for "no olive juice". Dirty means to add a small amount to a martini obviously, but I've never heard anyone order a martini "clean" before. Do people actually say that? If not, is there anything I can say other than "Mexican Martini, and please don't add any damned olive juice to it and ruin the drink" every time I order? :)
