Uncork the wine and pour it into a large pitcher.
Add the soda and stir slightly.
Add the lemon and orange slices, as well as the vermouth if using. Stir just to combine.
Serve over ice.
- Red Wine: I recommend a young, fruity red wine. A Spanish garnacha (grenache), or a pinot noir would work well. Make sure the wine is drinkable on its own -- otherwise you'll be looking at a harsh hangover! That said, don't use a super fancy wine for this, there is no need.
- Lemon Soda: If you can't find lemon Fanta, don't worry. You can use a mix of lemonade and soda water. You can also make this using orange soda (some people in Spain prefer tinto de verano con naranja) or simply use some sparkling water and simple syrup.
- Citrus: The traditional fruit you'll find in your tinto de verano is orange and lemon slices. If you want something more fruit-filled, try sangria.
- Vermouth: This is totally optional and not an ingredient in most places, but I love it! I recommend an ounce of vermouth per glass of tinto de verano.
