Not sure what to do with that tiny splash of leftover red? Add some cola, and you’ve got a Kalimotxo (or Calimocho), Spain’s most popular cocktail. Hailing from the Basque region, the drink has earned a dedicated following worldwide. Morgan Schick, of the San Francisco mixology group “The Bon Vivants,” says that the ratio used below makes for a perfectly proportioned cocktail.
- 3 ounces red wine
- 1 ounce cola
- Lemon twist (for garnish)
In rocks glass filled with ice, combine wine and cola. Stir gently. Garnish with lemon twist.
