Tinto de Verano Recipe

Try This Dead-Simple, Utterly Delicious Spin on Sangria

Spain's cheap variation of sangria, tinto de verano, is quite simply a red-wine spritzer. Refreshing and delicious, this concoction is my go-to drink when I'm in the mood for something light. This easily drinkable cocktail is a delightful alternative to beer and wine.

Choose a mixer that suits your taste buds (sparkling water, San Pelligrino Limonata, and Squirt are variations that I've made), and always garnish with a lemon wedge or wheel.
