I should warn you that the next week is going to be a little beverage-heavy as I have lots of holiday content – cocktails in particular – that needs to be loaded. The reality is that I would have loved to had it already posted, but as you well know this time of year can be crazy, and between trying to cram in a ton of work before Christmas and general merry-making, the days seem to be slipping by way too fast!
That being said, I am going to start with an easy one today. Have you ever had Calimocho – sometimes called Kalimoxto? It’s a Spanish cocktail that is equal parts red wine and cola. I first tasted it at Toro, in Boston and have been hooked on it since. Here, I gave it a seasonal spin by adding pomegranate juice, and a few seeds for garnish. This is a great drink to make and serve in large batches; party perfection!
- 1 Part Pomegranate Juice
- 2 Parts Red Wine, Such as Rioja
- 2 Parts Cola
- (Optional) Pomegranate Seeds
- Gently stir together the pomegranate juice, red wine, and cola. Serve over ice. Garnish with pomegranate seeds, if desired.
