It’s been above 90 all week and I’m still getting used to it, which means sleeping badly and melting in a million degree car at the end of the work day. What to drink when you get home and still have plants to water and dinner to make and miles to go before you sleep? The kalimotxo (ka-lee-MO-cho), aka equal parts red wine and Coke.


It sounds SUSPICIOUSLY like “redneck sangria” (wine and orange soda or Sprite) but it is apparently Basque, so it’s automatically classy and European. Heck, there’s even a New York Times article about it, so you know it’s legit. Hold your head high and drink up, and then get all your chores done.
