Red wine + cola = yummy?

Cheap red wine and Coke. It was popular in Spain in the 70’s and now it’s spreading throughout the world. Have you ever tried it? Would you? Even with the fancy lime and blackberry liquor?

From the article:

The traditional way to drink “kali” at these parties is to buy a two-litre bottle of Coke, pour half away and then fill the empty space with cheap red wine and mix.

We would never advise this, given the pain of the ensuing bonce-crunching hangover as well as the acts of gross sugar-rush and red-wine-fuelled stupidity that you might commit and then have to face up to in the morning. Having said that, next time you are rustling up a few dishes from Frank Camorra’s MoVida cookbook for friends, why not treat your guests to this most trailer trash of cocktails?

Just serve it in small glasses with crushed ice. Add a slice of lime, or even a splash of blackberry liqueur (such as a cassis-like creme de mure), if you want to be unnecessarily fancy.

You’ll find it is a surprisingly refreshing tipple and that the acidity of the cheap red is mellowed by the sweetness of the cola and that it all slips down rather well.
