I often end up playing bartender when we all get together at Gerry’s to watch Battlestar Galactica. This past weekend was no exception, and in honor of the season 3 premiere I came up with what we decided to call the Callymotxo. (Kalimotxo, pronounced /ˈkæliˈmotʃo/, is a wonderfully refreshing Basque mixed drink made by mixing cheap red wine with Coca-Cola. Brilliant!) Here’s how to make one:

  1. Two parts tequila
  2. One part triple-sec
  3. One or two parts cranberry juice
  4. Fill with Coca-Cola

N.B.: Substituting Diet Coke (or even Caffeine-Free Diet Coke) is perfectly A-OK.

It was a smash hit with our crew (though you’ll have to take their words for it as I can’t stand tequila myself).

Share and Enjoy! So say we all!
