Tinto de verano (Summer red wine)

Tinto de verano

Summer red wine is one of the summer essentials in Spain. This refreshing cocktail is similar to sangria, but it is easier to prepare. Tinto de verano is typically prepared with gaseosa (a Spanish lightly sweetened colorless soda), but you can add any lemon-lime soda (such as 7-up or Sprite) instead. Do not hesitate and try this refreshing and tasty beverage in a summer day!
