The calimocho or kalimotxo (Basque pronunciation: [ka.li.mo.tʃo], Spanish pronunciation: [ka.li.ˈmo.tʃo]) is a drink consisting of equal parts red wine and cola-based soft drink. The concoction dates back to the 1920s in Spain, but was relatively uncommon as Coca-Cola was not manufactured in the country at that time. The first Coca-Cola factory opened in Spain in 1953, and the drink was "reborn" and given its current name in 1972. It has since become a classic of the Basque Country region, in large part due to its simple mixture, accessibility of ingredients, and cheap cost.
