La Capilla

Tequila, Mexico

La Capilla is the oldest bar in Tequila – a tiny Mexican town that has become a household name around the world for one reason only. And, unsurprisingly, the drinks list here is all about the agave – but the order of the day isn't a margarita or a paloma, it's a batanga. The batanga is a lot like a Cuba libre, but with tequila rather than rum, and was created by La Capilla owner Javier Delgado Corona back in 1961. If you're lucky, the man himself, now in his 90s, will be on-hand to mix you one to his original specifications.
