Now here is something new that surprised and intrigued me! It seems there is a red sangria that we have not yet heard of here in North America, but they have heard of it in Spain! And also across South America. In fact, it was invented in Spain. It's easy and cheap to make. Use an inexpensive wine, as you're mixing it with Coke! Ignore the wine snobs and give this a try, it may surprise you. It did me. It's good! It will be great on a hot summer day!
