A Spanish summer in a glass
This drink immediately conjures memories of our Spanish road trips, when the car’s safely parked up.
We discovered it whilst researching our 2016 trip, and set about ticking that box early on.
We actually ticked it in Bilbao, where it’s commonly known as Kalimotxo in Basque.
It tastes better than you’d think
So the thought of red wine and coke didn’t sound that appealing on paper, but in the glass it tasted surprisingly better than expected. So if I aimed to replicate, would it take me back to that trip?
So what’s the recipe?
Well it’s not that complicated, but I’ve created three different options based on your location.
So does it work?
Yep, it took us straight back to Bilbao. Granted I needed to buy LSA Internationals GIO Tumblers
(the large ones) to complete the look, but I guess you can use any large beer glass.
The drink is refreshing, slightly sweet and great in the sunshine – give it a try, and if your in Spain, you’ve no excuse.
Inspired to try Calimocho/Kalimotxo
Why not give it a go? let us know how you get on.
