Yes, Pepsi works just as well. Obviously. ;-)

Wine connoisseurs and snobs… please don’t walk away! This Bambus Cocktail is really, reaaaaaally good! You’ll see.

SO! Today is Valentine’s Day! HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!

Wanna know what else we celebrate today?! We, as in me and my fellow Macedonians? We celebrate St. Trifun – the Saint and Guardian of wine and wine growers. And wine drinkers! (I hope?)

I told you about this particular day a while back, when I posted my recipe for Sausage Stuffed Eggplant. In honor of St. Trifun, on the 14th of February a celebration takes place in many city squares in Macedonia, including the famous Wine Fair. Before it all begins, priests say a prayer, and the pruning season is symbolically marked with the pruning of the three church wine grapes.

Yeah… we really like our wine.

But, how fitting that both Saints are celebrated on the same day. Wine + Love = Perfect Match!

They say, “In wine, there is the truth”. In Vino Veritas. Sooooo. If you want the truth to come out, have your Valentine drink a few Bambus Drinks!

And, I know! I’ve heard it before; Don’t you dare use red wine in a mixed drink!  …but you have to give it a try. It’s super simple and surprisingly delicious. In Macedonia, this is one of the most popular mixed drinks, and since you all LOVE my Macedonian recipes, you know you’re going to want this one, too!

Oh, just give it a try – you can thank me later. :-)

      Yes, when I lived in Sandander, just west of País Vasco, it was my favorite. Spelled calimocho in castellano.

    I’ve had that cocktail before and it IS really good and I am one of those snobs who is not ashamed to admit it. I was told it was a Spanish cocktail and I couldn’t remember the name. So glad to come across your post. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I really like reading and learning about your culture! Please keep sharing :)

    At first, I didn’t think this sounded good, but I trust you, so I want to try it!
    Happy V-Day and St. Trifun Day :)
