At Painting with a Twist, we love a good twist in our cocktails, making the Tinto De Verano a perfect sip for any painting class. This simple and refreshing colorful cocktail is a fan fave! Originating from Spain, this red wine-based drink is similar to a Sangria but with a twist of lemon. With a splash of lemonade, a twist of lemon, and muddled mint, this cocktail is sure to be a fan favorite for all!
Many also call the Tinto de Verano the “Red Wine of the Summer.” Summer may be coming to a close where you are, but this cocktail will help you relish in the memories of summertime. This cocktail also has less alcohol in it, making it a perfect beverage to paint with!
