Tinto de Verano
This delicious and refreshing Spanish cocktail recipe is popular in the summer if you're looking for an alternative to the usual Sangria.
As a tourist in Andalucía, it’s hard to escape sangria, but the locals prefer its simplified cousin, tinto de verano, or ‘wine of summer’. Don’t use expensive wine for this – go for something fruity and non-tannic. La Casera is a Spanish soft drink and is quite tricky to get hold of, but you can approximate it by mixing ordinary lemonade and soda water in equal quantities.
