When I was living in the Basque region of Spain, this was a traditional drink served everywhere. It is pronounced 'Cali-mot-cho' and is traditionally served over ice with a slice of lemon.

Been drinking this for years. We call it a "Cola Red". Lots of people turn their noses up to the idea of this but it really is just a red wine version of a white wine sprtizer. A great way to drink red wine on a warm summer night. Not as sweet as a sangria. And with diet soda it comes out to be a fairly low-cal drink. Adjust the ratio to your personal preference. I like more red than cola Read More

This was pretty good. I used sangiovese and diet cola. I also added the lemon to the drink and it seemed to help blend the flavors together. Read More

Fixed this drink last night for a party. Great way to stretch out a bottle of cheap wine. I even used diet cola. Read More

The Basque do it best. When making this pay special attention to the fiz. You want a light purple fiz which to me is more wine less cola! And get the cheapest bottle! My favorite 5 o'clock cocktail. Read More

I saw this drink on The Chive app. It didnt have a recipe attached so where else would one go to get a trustworthy recipe. I left the garnish off. Good drink. Will make again after I finish this one. Lol Read More
