Miss Marisa’s ‘Tinto de Verano’

Buon giorno Miss Lopez people!!, today I’ll show you how to prepare a refreshing ‘Tinto de Verano’ cocktail: It’s easy, so refreshing and you can do it for your friends/family any time you have a dinner, everybody loves this fantastic summer drink.The name “Tinto de Verano” translates into English as “Red Wine of Summer.” It is a refreshing wine cocktail served in summer all over Spain. Although similar to sangria, it is easier to make and has less alcohol in it, making it the perfect to sip at pool party or at the beach on a hot afternoon. Although we  use  “gaseosa” or “Casera” which is a lightly sweetened soda, you can use any lemon-lime soda. If it is too sweet for your taste, add a splash of soda water or seltzer.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients:
1/2 cup red wine (see serving suggestion below)
1/2 cup lemon-lime soda, such as Sprite or 7-up
ice
slice of lemon
Preparation: In a tall glass of at least 20 ounces, place 3-4 ice cubes. Add red wine and soda. Garnish with a lemon slice
It is not important what variety of red wine  you use in this cocktail. Our rule on wine punches and cocktails is this: If you wouldn’t want to drink the wine by itself in a glass, then don’t use it in a punch or cocktail. You don’t have to use your best wine, but using a decent table wine will prevent you from having a bad hangover.
Salud a todos!! and feel good womanhood!
