Spanish Wine Drinks & Punches

The Spanish enjoy wine on its own, but on a hot summer day they see nothing wrong with mixing up a cool wine cocktail or punch. From traditional or white sangria to a "tinto de verano," they are guaranteed to cool you down and taste great, too.

Easy Spanish Sangria Recipe
Is there a better drink for the summer than sangria? It's a great party drink for warm weather. Sangria is easy to make, inexpensive, and very refreshing. It is made primarily of red wine, lemon-lime soda, fresh fruit and lots and lots of ice!

Tinto de Verano Recipe - Spanish Wine Cocktail
“Tinto de Verano,” or in English “Red Wine of Summer” is a refreshing wine cocktail served in in Spain during hot summer days. It is similar to sangria, but much easier to make and has less alcohol. Mix lemon-lime soda or lemonade, red wine, and ice. Garnish with a slice of lemon. It's so refreshing and is the perfect drink to sip at a pool party, or at the beach on a hot afternoon.

White Wine Sangria
A light and refreshing twist on "sangria", the traditional Spanish wine punch, mix white wine, lemon-lime soda, oranges and lemons with a splash of triple sec and you have yourself a cool summer drink for parties.

Sparkling Wine Lemon Sorbet Recipe - Sorbete de Cava y Limon
Is it a drink or a dessert? Actually it's both! Combine the love of frozen desserts with the Spanish fondness for their sparkling wine called "cava" and you have a wonderfully cool, refreshing dessert or party drink. This sorbet recipe results in a frothy lemon drink, quite often served at wedding receptions. It's the perfect warm weather drink to end a meal.
