Enjoy these four recipes for Spanish cocktails
You can’t miss the wine in Spain. The Kalimotcho is a mixture of red wine and cola.
1 glass of red wine (Tempranillo or Riojo)
Low sugar cola
Slice of lemon
Type of glass: Collins
Preparation: Fill a collins glass with ice. Add the red wine and coke, and quickly stir the drink. Garnish with a lemon wedge and serve with a straw.
Coquito is a version of Christmas punch. Since its arrival in Puerto Rico from Spain, today it has evolved into a cocktail of rum and creamy coconut cream.
1 to 1 1/2 c. white rum, to taste
2 cans of coconut cream (such as Coco Lopez)
2 cans of evaporated milk
1 egg yolk (optional)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, more for garnish
Cinnamon sticks, for serving
Preparation: In a blender, add 1 cup rum and all ingredients up to the nutmeg. Blend until well combined, about 1 to 2 minutes. At this point, taste the mixture and add more rum if desired.
Pour the coquito into a large, tightly covered container and refrigerate until well chilled. To serve, shake the jar well to disperse the cinnamon and pour into small glasses.
Garnish with grated nutmeg and cinnamon sticks.
3. Lemonade and beer
Very refreshing, an alternative way of tasting beer.
2 lemons, thinly sliced
2 limes, thinly sliced (save a few slices for garnish)
1 apple, sliced
1 cup blueberries
1 can (12 ounces) ginger beer
2 bottles (12 ounces) wheat beer (such as Hoegaarden)
1 cup lemonade
1/2 cup seltzer
Preparation: Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher (or large bowl) and stir. Chill for 2 hours, or until cold. Serve with lime slices for garnish.
4. White Sangria
For Spanish cocktails, this recipe is simply another take on sangria.
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 mango, diced
1 peach, sliced
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
1 apple, sliced
1 orange, sliced
1 lime, sliced
1 bottle (750 ml.) dry white wine, chilled
1 cup seltzer
In a medium bowl, combine strawberries, mango, peach, sugar and Grand Marnier. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
In a large pitcher, add the chilled fruit and the apple, orange and lime slices. Pour in the white wine and seltzer, and stir to combine. Serve well chilled.
5. Pomada Menorquina
This cocktail originated on the island of Menorca in 1967 and thanks to its sparkling effect it is called pomada.
50 ml Gin
100 ml Lemonade (natural lemon juice or homemade lemonade)
Slice or quarter of lemon (optional)
Fresh mint (stem or core) (optional)
*Prepare directly in the glass
Preparation: Start by adding the ice in the glass and a slice of lemon. Add one third of gin and two thirds of lemonade. Finally mix lightly, and finish by garnishing with a few mint leaves.
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
