In Southern regions of Spain it is common for locals to drink Tinto de verano as it is easy to make at home and is considered less touristy than the more expensive Sangria. And as the name implies tinto de verano is often served during warmer days of summer.

One of my favorite aspects of this recipe is that you can choose a mixer that you prefer to suit you or your guests tastes. I happen to love San Pelligrino Limonata, however Squirt and Sprite mixed with sparkling water is another option readily available in all areas.
