This Ultimate Travel Packing Checklist was last updated May 2018, as we packed our bags yet again, to roam around Mexico!

Roaming Around the World added 4 new photos — at Capilla Cantina De Don Javier.

For #ThirstyThursday this week, we’ll be bringing our friends to the pueblo of Tequila to drink a “batanga” at the oldest bar in town!
This famous cantina regularly makes its way into many “50 Best Bars in the World” lists. It’s a dingy dive bar called “La Capilla,” (translation: The Chapel) because people come on their feet, but leave on their knees, praying.
It’s the cantina’s signature batanga drink that delivers the punch said to drop patrons to the floor. When ordering a batanga at La Capilla, a tall salt-rimmed glass is filled with ice and a heavy pour of silver tequila. Coke and fresh-squeezed lime juice are added and it’s all stirred together with the same knife that sliced the limes.
It’s a fairly simple drink, but it’s good! Yet the atmosphere of this old cantina setting in the town of Tequila is what really perfects this drink, as a mariachi band randomly passes through. We thankfully left still standing. We’ll see if our friends can withstand the same fate! 😜 ... See MoreSee Less
Yep! One of our favorite places :-)
Does the coke make this kinda sweet? That's why I like margaritas - I'm not fond of sweet drinks.
Here's to you kid!🍻
I have been told that tequila,Coke with lime is a Charro Negro. I'll be down there next week and will continue my research!
