Basically a Cuba Libre made with tequila in place of rum. An improvement.


Created in 1961 by the legendary Don Javier Delgado Corona, owner/bartender of La Capilla (The Chapel) in Tequila, Mexico. Mixing cocktails in his eighties, Don Javier is noted for ritualistically stirring his drinks with a knife.

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