Try this gorgeous long drink. One of life's little known pleasures.
Take the biggest tumbler you can find - forget about those poncy wine glasses, peanut butter glasses are pretty good.
Fill with large blocks of ice.
Apply cheap dry red wine to the half way mark. (Why waste the good stuff?)
Top up with soda water and gently stir.
