Type of Margarita Tasted: Reposado margarita
Review: According to their website, Casa Rio was the first San Antonio business to open it’s doors to the river and take advantage it’s setting. We visited on a busy night and were seated outdoors right on the Riverwalk. A cold front was coming through at the time which is why you see a shot of Patron in the picture to the left of the margarita. If you didn’t know, tequila can warm you up quick when in shot form. At first sip of the resposado margarita, there was an initial blast of equal parts lime and tequila. The cocktail was slightly sour with enough sweetness popping through to provide adequate balance. Casa Rio serves an above average margarita and we recommend trying what they have to offer for yourself. Though. try eating inside when Texas experiences lower than usual temperatures. They do have several tequilas to choose from if your jacket doesn’t warm you up enough.
