It is always a bit fun to have a drink for breakfast on occasion when you are relaxing with family and friends.
It is also refreshing on a warm sunny afternoon when you get a chance to enjoy the sun on a day off and have friends over.
Be sure to add the thin orange slices to each glass. It really adds to the full effect of the tropical feeling this drink has.
The addition of a strawberry or mint leaves put a finishing touch on this drink.
Using a dry red wine works to balance the sweetness of the orange juice. Look for a fruity, full bodied Spanish style dry red wine.
