It is so fun to entertain around the holidays but more than ever I’m looking for quick-and-easy ideas. I’m kind of on a pairing kick lately so I love creating fun cocktails to pair with easy meals – especially for friends coming over. This Halloween-inspired pizza & cocktail pairing is SO easy you can make everything in 15 minutes, once you pop the pizza in the oven. If you keep a few basics on hand throughout the month, you’ll be able to have a spooky good pairing perfect for a last minute get-together or a planned Halloween movie night or party. All you’ll need to grab from the store on your next run is a pack of Coca-Cola® Mini Cans (7.5 oz. cans, 30pk) and a 16” Take ‘N Bake Pepperoni Pizza. As long as your home bar is stocked with a bottle of BACARDÍ® Superior rum & a bottle of Chianti, you’re ready to make this pairing in no time!
Rum Kalimotxo Recipe
To make the cocktail part of this pairing you’ll need BACARDÍ® Superior rum, Coca-Cola® (I love the mini cans because they’re the perfect size for parties & the 30 pack is the easiest way to stock up), and a bottle of Chianti. Did you know that BACARDÍ® is the most preferred rum? It’s fun and always makes a great choice for parties. You might think this is a strange pairing but it’s actually so good! It has some sangria vibes but with the familiar, refreshing taste of ice-cold Coca-Cola®! It’s such a fun cocktail to serve because a lot of people have never tried it, but end up loving the unique combo!
- 3 oz Ice Cold Coca-Cola
- 3 oz Chianti
- 1.5 oz BACARDÍ® Superior Rum
- Add Coca-Cola to a wine or cocktail glass
- Pour in Chianti
- Add BACARDÍ® Superior Rum
- Top with Ice
I use BACARDÍ® rum all year but love that the bottle fits in perfectly with Halloween decor with that black bat so it’s an easy choice when making Halloween-themed cocktails! It’s always a go-to for parties around here. Actually, you can earn with an Ibotta rebate right now: Earn $3 on the purchase of BACARDÍ®, Gold, Black, Flavors, or Oakheart Spiced Rum 750mL or larger (10/3/18-10/31/18), so it’s the perfect time to stock your bar!
