The Batanga and the Paloma cocktails were created by Don Javier, the late owner of La Capilla Cantina in the town of Tequila. They are two simple mixed drinks that are so perfect they have become classics. Nothing more than El Tequileño Tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice and soda served in a tall glass with lots of ice and a pinch of salt. Don Javier always used El Tequileño Tequila which was handy as the distillery is right next door to the bar!
El Tequileno Platinum tequila is 100% agave for 100% agave flavour - it is the preferred brand of tequila at La Capilla Cantina in Tequila, founded by the late Don Javier Delgado Corona and a regular fixture in the World's Top 50 Bars list. Don Javier invented the Paloma in 1961 - it is now a classic mixed drink.
Don Javier's tip: stir your drink with the un-wiped knife that you cut the limes with, this adds extra flavour. In Don Javier's case, he used a Damascus knife to stir the cocktails he prepared, so time to get your best steel out!
