May drink of the month: Sangria
Sangria is like the redheaded stepchild of icy, Latin-inspired drinks, often losing out in popularity to their tequila-filled cousin, the margarita. But to overlook the Spanish punch would be a mistake—the fruit juice and wine make it a refreshing bet for a hot day, and you can convince yourself you're being healthy because of the juice. And with each bar putting its own spin on the drink, you're sure to find one to cool you off on those caliente nights.
