A bonafide summer classic in Spain...
the Tinto de Verano (literally Summer Red Wine) combines dry red wine with citrus soda and sparkling water; think of it as a cousin to the more famous cola-based Kalimotxo. We love the classic version, but as the cooler fall weather starts to settle in, we like to add vermouth, which lends the drink a richer, more complex, and decidedly autumnal flavor profile.
