So, coke and red wine probably sounds horrible to you. It’s not. Hear me out. Kalimotxo is a really simple and really refreshing drink. My dear friend Karin turned me on to them. In Boise, which is where I am from, there is this amazing Basque restaurant Bar Gernika. They serve Kalimotxos there, and I always try to get one, and their croquetas, which are amazing. I was skeptical at first because like you, I thought coke and red wine would be disgusting. I could blab on about how coke balances out nicely with cheap wine, but I won’t. Just make it, and you will be happy. It’s easy, yummy, and I like the caffeine, helpful when you’re super lazy and drinking. Give it a chance!
