Here’s how we’re drinking red wine this summer: with orange soda and ice.
I first had this easy-drinking red wine cocktail years ago in Austin, Texas at the Hotel San Jose. Now every time the deepest summer days rolls around and the hot wind loses a bit of its humidity, I find myself craving this sparkling and lightly fruity drink.
It’s a little bit sweet and a touch dry and really very drinkable this time of year.
We’re doing ice in our wine. We’re doing orange soda in our wine. We’re making up the rules and breaking them when we want to ok? It’s too hot not to.
