Interesting-- Coke and red wine make a perfectly delightful combination when mixed about 50-50 and well iced. The wine cuts the sweetness of the Coke, and the Coke adds zing to the wine. And it travels. Easily. To prepare: Take a 1.5-liter bottle of Coke and pour out half. Pour in one 750-mililiter bottle of dry (and cheap) red wine. Seal the bottle. Dispense into red Solo cups full of ice. Repeat.
I dare say you will not find a red wine under ten bucks that drinks like this one. Apothic is one of the boldest, most luscious and complex wines I've ever enjoyed. It drinks like a bottle that costs three times as much, easily.
