Pomegranate Calimocho Cocktail


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!
