Some say the secret to mixing cola and red wine together is using the cheapest plonk you can get. We prefer a slightly better, dry, tannic red. This Basque, a popular refresher on the shores of San Sebastian, is the best-known, although the drink is also popular throughout Spain, in parts of Eastern Europe, and in South America, under different names.
- 3 oz. dry rioja wine
- 3 oz. cola
- Juice of half a lemon
