Make the Best of Cheap Wine With This 2-Ingredient Spanish Cocktail

 

Where's that one spot in your home where you like to linger during slow mornings, either in solitude or with a few friends on the weekend? Maybe it's those chairs in that sun-drenched corner, the butcher-block kitchen counter, or just settled in at your dining table.

For me, it's outside, and there are actually two nooks: Under a pergola with an overgrown wisteria vine (I'm waiting patiently for you to bloom, wisteria!) and next to a makeshift fire pit in big Adirondack chairs. Coffee and eggs are necessary when it's just me, but I like to have something more substantial, plus boozy drinks, when there are other humans present before noon.

Long, lazy mornings (like the one I'm conjuring in my head now), and what to eat and drink during them, is the subject of writer and baker Joy Wilson's new cookbook Joy the Baker Over Easy. And it, as if after my heart out of the gates, kicks off with a whole chapter dedicated to cocktails. Tucked in among the micheladas, sangrias, and mimosas is a drink with Spanish origins, the Kalimotxo. Made by mixing red table wine with cola, the Kalimotxo hails from Spain's Basque region and, as Joy notes, should have a place at your next extended brunch session: click here to read more.
