Tinto de Verano

Tall glass of tinto de verano, a read wine with Sprite, and ice cubes
Tinto de verano, which loosely translates as "summer red wine" in Spanish, is a cooling and not too intoxicating drink to have on a hot day. Red wine, preferably Spanish, is mixed with Sprite or 7-Up and poured over ice. Ahhhhhh.
