A refreshing Spanish summer cocktail made with fruity red wine and lemon soda.
Tinto de verano is a fizzy cousin of sangria that's more popular with locals in Spain. It's made with red wine and lemon soda, garnished with a lemon wedge. It's a perfect enjoyed on a sunny patio.
Red wine (try to find young, fruity Spanish red wine like garnacha, tempranillo, or Rioja), lemon soda or sparkling water, orange, lemon, and ice cubes.
First, grab a large pitcher and some ice cubes. Next, add ice to the pitcher and pour in your red wine.
Now, pour the lemon soda or lemon sparkling water into the pitcher. Gently stir everything together, making sure the soda doesn't go flat.
Slice lemons and oranges into wedges or thin rounds. Then, add them to the pitcher and give everything another good stir.
Fill cocktail glasses with ice and pour in the tinto de verano. Garnish with more citrus slices.
