Directly translated El Caballito means “the little horse”. Legend has it that when a great Mexican revolutionary requested a shot of tequila as his last right before execution, the tequila was poured into his personal shot glass, and as he lifted the glass to his lips a tiny golden horse could be seen on the bottom. To this day, the long narrow shot glass used to drink tequila is known as a “Caballito”.
