Introduction: Tinto De Verano

The name “Tinto de Verano” translates into English as “Red Wine of Summer.” Basically this is the equivalent of summer in a glass (if summer was made of red wine and lemon lime soda).

This is a drink that I first tried when I lived in Southern Spain. It's very similar to sangria, but without the super boozy punch. It's extremely refreshing on a hot day and really easy to make, as it only has two ingredients.

As always, thanks for reading!

Step 1: Simple Recipe

Most folks think of sangria when they think of Spanish drinks, but I assure you, this is what the locals drink.

Mix the following over ice.

1/2 cup red wine (I went with an inexpensive Merlot)

1/2 cup of soda of your choice.

This recipe can be scaled up very easily in order to make several servings.

The variations are as follows:

- Sprite, 7 Up, or Lemon Fanta, if you want it sweet, known as Tinto con Limon -

- Cola, if you like it less sweet, Known as Tinto con Casera -

Garnish with a lemon slice and enjoy.

A red wine with cola is a "calimocho or kalimotxo". "tinto de verano" is a mix of red wine and Gaseosa, who's a soda similar to Sprite or 7up. and the most kown brand in Spain is La Casera.

Good to know, thanks.

But the idea of mixing wine and soda... beurk

Well done, it looks really refreshing!
