Tinto de verano is a Spanish summer wine, a mixture of soda (Fanta lemon or Gaseosa) and red wine. Serve it on the rocks and with a slice of lemon and your refreshing and light alcoholic drink is ready. Tinto de Verano is a very popular drink in Spain during the summer. It is actually a lot more popular by the locals than Sangria. On my tapas tour, lots of people tried Tinto de Verano for the first time and really liked it! They are surprised how easy it is to make. To celebrate the summer, I am making Tinto de Verano. Hope you will enjoy this video and drink one as well 😉
