One of the best things about enjoying a drink over happy hour is giving yourself permission to not go all out with the libations. Sometimes, you don’t need a fancy glass, flavorful herbs or fresh squeezed juice – you just need a nice cold glass of whatever is in your kitchen. And that is the beauty of the Kalimotxo. That magnum bottle of red wine you were saving for a fancy dinner party? Get out the cork screw and tear into that bad boy. Now grab a can of your favorite soda and pour a mixture of the wine and cola over a big cup of ice. Your happy hour drink is served.

    I am from India & quite hard to get red wine. But, I am quite excited to enjoy coke with wine. Can anyone suggest me alternative of red wine?

    Interesting…I would have never thought to mix red wine with coke. It does sound refreshing.
