Tinto de Verano (Summer Red Wine)

1/2 cup red wine (see serving suggestion below)
1/2 cup lemon-lime soda, such as Sprite or 7-up
slice of lemon

In a tall glass of at least 20 ounces, place 3-4 ice cubes. Add red wine and soda. Garnish with a lemon slice. An expensive wine will not be required.

Serving Suggestion
It is not important what variety of red wine that you use in this cocktail. Our rule on wine punches and cocktails is this: If you wouldn’t want to drink the wine by itself in a glass, then don’t use it in a punch or cocktail. You don’t have to use your best wine, but using a good table wine will prevent you from having a bad hangover.
