Sea of Confusion

Beverage director Houston Eaves, the beverage director at The Esquire Tavern in San Antonio, oversees the menu, crafting visually stunning drinks like the Sea of Confusion, served tall over crushed ice with a layered effect from a float of Angostura bitters and Lemon Hart 151 rum. The funky goodness of Hamilton Jamaican pot-still gold rum takes a slightly fruity, floral and bitter turn when it mixes with Clear Creek pear brandy, Yellow Chartreuse and Cappelletti amaro sfumato rabarbaro.
