Tinto de verano, literally summer red wine, is a cousin of my beloved sangría. It is very popular in Spain and increasingly in this part of the world. It is prepared by mixing equal parts of red wine with lime soda. It can be served with ice and personally I like it with a slice of orange and a splash of rum. It's perfect for lunch on hot days like the ones we already have in Miami. Salud!

its doors in the upscale Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables. But Najat
Kaanache, a 5-feet tall hurricane, with glowing olive skin, wide forehead and
fire in her eyes, is not new to the restaurant business.
Iconic chef Ferran
Adrià, with whom Kaanache worked during the two final and crucial seasons of elBulli (three Michelin stars), said: “Chef Najat Kaanache is four times better
than I was when I became chef of elBulli." Chapeau.
