America's Best Margaritas
Nuestra Margarita, Esquire Tavern, San Antonio, TX
A fixture of San Antonio’s River Walk, The Esquire prides itself on a fine spirits selection and handcrafted cocktails that have garnered the attention of the James Beard Foundation. For the signature margarita, “we use a blend of lowland (Fortaleza Blanco) and highland (Siembra Azul Reposado) tequila,” explains beverage director Houston Eaves. “These are two of the absolute finest tequilas on earth, used with fresh-squeezed Key limes and original French triple sec (Combier).” Don’t just take his word for it; sample one yourself. A dollar of each Nuestra Margarita sold contributes to the Tequila Interchange Project, a nonprofit that advocates the preservation of sustainable, traditional practices.
