Tinto de Verano (Spanish Red Wine Cocktail)

Suzy Karadsheh
Tinto de Verano, Spanish for “red wine of summer” is a refreshing and easy-to-make red wine cocktail that’s ready in less than 5 minutes. You can dress things up with orange and lemon slices, but you really only need wine, soda, and ice to make this bubbly summer sipper.

  • 1.5 cup 4 ounces red wine
  • 1.5 Cup 4 ounces lemon or lime soda, like Sprite, 7Up, or La Casera
  • Lemon wheels for garnish (optional)
  • Navel orange wheels for garnish (optional)


  • Get ready. Fill a serving glass with ice. (I like to keep things casual with a highball glass or a stemless wine goblet.)
  • Mix, garnish, and serve. Add the wine and soda and give it a gentle stir. Optionally, garnish with the citrus wheels. Cheers!


  • I like a fruity, medium-bodied red wine. It doesn’t need to be too expensive but should be good enough to drink on its own.
  • To make this pitcher-style (for up to 6 people), pour one bottle of red wine into a pitcher. Top with ¾ of a liter of soda (that’s 750ML, or just over 3 cups). Serve into 6 ice-filled glasses immediately, as it will lose its bubbles over time.
