When it comes to Spanish beverages, Sangria and Tinto de Verano often top the list of favorites. But are they the same? Join us as we unravel the delightful distinction between these two beloved Spanish drinks. From their flavor profiles to serving traditions, we'll explore the unique qualities that make each beverage a refreshing delight. Plus, we'll introduce a Tinto de Verano recipe with a twist of maracuya foam that will take your taste buds on an exotic journey.
Sangria and Tinto de Verano may share a common origin in Spain, but they each have their own distinct characteristics.
For the Maracuya Foam:
In a large pitcher, combine the red wine, lemon slices, orange slices, and sugar. Stir gently until the sugar dissolves. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
Meanwhile, prepare the maracuya foam. In a small saucepan, heat the maracuya juice, water, and sugar over medium heat until it starts to simmer. Stir continuously until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let it cool.
Once the maracuya foam mixture has cooled, transfer it to a blender. Blend on high speed until the mixture becomes frothy and airy.
Fill the NACHTMANN glasses with ice cubes and pour the prepared Tinto de Verano over the ice. Top each glass with a generous dollop of maracuya foam, allowing it to cascade over the vibrant red wine mixture.
Garnish each glass with fresh mint leaves for a burst of aroma and a touch of Spanish flair.
Serve chilled and enjoy the invigorating blend of fruity wine, citrusy notes, and the exotic tang of maracuya foam—a refreshing ode to the vibrant flavors of Spain.
