Will The Batanga Be This Year's Hottest Cocktail?

If cocktails influencers and tequila companies are to be believed, La Batanga is poised to become 2024's hottest cocktail. From it's liquor to its mixer, it captures the essence of Mexican culture in every sip. Made with tequila, fresh lime juice, and the unmistakable fizz of Mexican Coca-Cola with sugar cane, this cocktail is a celebration of tradition and taste, and is dangerously easy to drink.

Batanga Ingredients

  • 2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • Mexican Coca-Cola
  • Coarse salt, for rimming your glass
  • Lime Wedge, for garnish

How To Make A Batanga

  1. Rim a highball glass with coarse salt by running a lime wedge around the rim and dipping it into salt.
  2. Fill a glass with ice cubes.
  3. Add tequila and lime juice.
  4. Top with Mexican Coke, leaving room for fizz, and stir gently.
  5. Garnish with a lime wedge.

According to legend, you should use the same knife you used to cut the lime wedge as your stirrer. This is how the cocktail's creator, Don Javier Delgado Corona, made them at his bar, La Capilla, in Tequila, Mexico.

Batanga Riff

For a fiery variation, add a dash of hot sauce or a slice of jalapeño to the Batanga. The subtle heat compliments the sweetness of the Coca-Cola and the tartness of the lime, creating a tantalizing fusion of flavors.
