When it comes to Summer gatherings, I like to make refreshing and easy drinks (of course with a Latin twist!) to share with my family and friends. Not too long ago I learned about this recipe call “Tinto de Verano” which is a wine-based cold drink similar to sangria and is very popular in Spain. The Spanish name of “Tinto de Verano” translate to Red Wine of Summer and as the name says it is perfect for the summertime.
Although, this recipe is similar to sangria, there are fewer ingredients in this wine-based drink; making it much easy to prepare. All you need is a good red wine such as Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, lemon-lime soda and a couple of slices of lemon or lime for garnish. For this recipe I chose Sutter Home Merlot, which is perfect for this recipe since Sutter Home is the go to wine for all summer entertaining needs. From Wine tasting with friends, to a girls night in, Sutter Home is the perfect choice to bring a variety of flavors to your summer fun. Sutter Home can make every day occasions a little more special.
This recipe is easy to make and your amigos (friends) will love it!
