Last year we visited the Basque region of Spain, and were introduced to this traditional drink, which is served everywhere. The Kalimotxo, pronounced ‘Cali-mot-cho’, is traditionally served over ice with a slice of lemon. We love a bit of drink history and the story goes like this. Sometimes referred to as ‘Cuba Libre Del Pobre’ or poor man’s Cuba Libre, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Cubans came up with it. The town decided to commemorate him by naming the drink in his honour. They combined his nickname, Kali, with ‘motxo’ (the Basque word for ugly) and voila! The Kalimotxo was ..read more

The Basement, 24 Fitzmaurice St, Wagga Wagga NSW @barolivette Last September, Nick King and Anna Wealands opened Olivette, a unique speakeasy in regional NSW that channels the glitz and glamour of the 1920s while celebrating their mutual love for whisky, cocktails, and genuine hospitality.
