Sangria or Tinto de Verano? Which summer drink do you like best? We reveal the fundamental secret of the differences in the recipe of both drinks. While the summer red only needs red wine, soda and lots of ice, the sangria is somewhat more complex. The latter incorporates a light touch of liquor, as well as abundant red wine, cut fruit and sugar.
Sangria is a very classic drink in the hot months, the beach bars take advantage of this time of year to invite all the tourists to try it, it is a one-way road since once you try it, it becomes your favorite drink.. It is refreshing and easy to make. A large glass, plenty of ice, a little red wine and a lot of soda is enough. And if you want it more sophisticated, a slice of lemon. A perfect combination for the hottest days.
Homemade sangria: If you want to make a sangria at home, the most traditional formula is with red wine (if it is of better quality), water, sugar, lemon juice and some fruit such as peach or apple macerated in the liquid itself. Optionally, a minimum touch of liquor as well.
