As for drinks, there will be the porrón, a wine pitcher which is meant to be poured straight into a person’s mouth from the air, as well as cocktails and wine. The name of the bar refers to a drink from Spain where red wine and cola soda are mixed together (that cocktail will be served on the menu under the name “Tinto de Verano”).

Overseeing Kalimotxo’s drinks are bar manager Brett Esler (who is most known for his longtime work at notable East Austin bar Whisler’s, which he left in October), and general manager Alicia Schmidt (who develops the restaurant -Emmer & Rye – group’s stellar wine lists).
