It’s hardly summer in Spain until people are drinking tinto de verano outside. Tinto de verano is a popular drink where wine is mixed with lemon-lime soda. I wanted to combine the fruity flavor of Sangria, but also the light effervescence of tinto de verano. I made mine with strawberries— inspired by sangria I had in Seville—and also added kiwi, a popular fruit in my home stay. Blood orange soda, instead of lemon-lime, is a great and refreshing way to expand a bottle of wine.


  • 1 bottle of a red wine you like (I used Evodia Calatayud red wine ’10)
  • 1 package of strawberries
  • 3 kiwis
  • 1 bottle of Lorina sparkling Italian blood orange juice

  3. Pour in the blood orange soda and serve with a strawberry or kiwi garnish.
