    Default The Batanga

    Wondering if anyone is into these drinks and what the favorite recipe is. I'm not thrilled with my Batanga and looking for some help.

    Glass with ice

    2 oz of Tequila
    .5 oz of lime juice
    6 oz of coke
    Stay Frosty

    This is my favorite cocktail, and is the proper way to prepare a Batanga (as made by the man himself, Don Javier);

    -Rim tall glass with lime and sea salt
    -Fill glass with ice
    -Add juice of one (fresh Mexican) lime
    -Fill glass half way with El Tequileño blanco (and yes, it is a mixto, but its around 80/20 agave to cane sugar. And it is quite tasty). Though Fortaleza works very nicely too!
    -Top of the glass with Mexican Coca-Cola
    -Stir with a big old knife, and enjoy!

    The ratio of tequila to Coke is almost 1:1. And I will usually get 2 drinks out of one Coke bottle.

    They also have a 100% for all three expressions.
