Best Old Fashioned In San Antonio: What Makes It So Good?


Posted By: Esquire Team


The Old Fashioned. Traditionally made with whiskey or bourbon, sugar, bitters, and a citrus rind, the Old Fashioned is how you determine whether a bartender is great or not. Not too sweet, not too strong, and a hint of sweetness make a great Old Fashioned. But how do you track down the best Old Fashioned in San Antonio? First, you need to track down one of the greatest bartenders in San Antonio.

The Esquire Tavern is proud to be the home of award-winning mixologist, Houston Eaves. Eaves brings his background in world travel, customer appreciation, and hospitality together to provide a one-of-a-kind cocktail experience. A pioneer in the cocktail industry, Eaves was even mentioned in an article in the New York Times featuring a new wave in the cocktail world. His talent is the reason we can claim we have the best Old Fashioned in San Antonio.

What Makes The Esquire Tavern’s Old Fashioned Different?

We stir in not just one, but two spirits in your Old Fashioned. Choose between your choice of rye whiskey or añejo tequila and our special blend we call the Esquire Rum Blend No. 1. What’s in it? Good stuff.

Our Esquire Rum Blend No. 1 provides a distinct smoky flavor to your traditional Old Fashioned, while our special citrus oils balance the bitters stirred in. We don’t use just any regular orange for garnish, either. We hand pick all of our garnishes to add a fresh flavor to all of our cocktails. The best Old Fashioned in San Antonio is served exclusively on the rocks, and we know you’ll want a round 2.
