"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." — LORIKAE

cheap red wine

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.
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
I was not sure about red wine and dark cola, but I tried it and it was refreshing, delicious, and really easy. Thanks!
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.
Fixed this drink last night for a party. Great way to stretch out a bottle of cheap wine. I even used diet cola.
I would prefer about 3/4 wine and the remainder coke with a lemon slice.
