Review:

Basically a Cuba Libre made with tequila in place of rum and an all-important pinch of salt.

History:

Created in 1961 by the legendary Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner/bartender of La Capilla (The Chapel) in Tequila, Mexico. Don Javier famously ritualistically stirred this drink with the knife he used to cut the limes, something he did into his eighties.

The Batanga is a popular drink in Mexico, helped by being featured in an advertising campaign by El Tequileño, a tequila made close to Don Javier's bar.
