American multinational soft drink manufacturer Pepsico started a line of premium soft drinks for use in cocktails, called 1893.

So far, as defined by Wikipedia, all the beverages are “totally natural”, produced under fair trade rules, and include Original Cola, Ginger Cola, Black Currant Cola, and Citrus Cola.

Now, the company has also surprised us with a video explaining how to make kalimotxo using their 1893 Original Cola.

The truth is that this is not the first time we’ve seen Americans interested in this Basque cocktail.  For example, in 2013, the New York Times published a guide on how to correctly make it, and in 2015, also in the US, a new product called Motxo was launched: kalimotxo in a bottle.

We’ll leave you with the video Pepsi has posted on their Twitter feed explaining the “secrets” of a good kalimotxo.
