A simple stir of red wine and cola, the Calimocho (or Kalimotxo), is a summer classic in Spain. Inexpensive, dry red wine works well (like Grenache or Shiraz), and Booze and Vinyl authors André Darlington & Tenaya Darlington suggest lemon-lime soda for a twist. Pair it with their Summer Grill + Chill playlist.
3 oz. red wine
3 oz. cola
Lime wedge, for garnish
Garnish: lime wedge
Combine the wine and cola in cups filled with ice. Give it a quick stir. Garnish.
