Since it’s still scorching outside, why not take a little time to cool off and relax with a tiny umbrella and an 8 oz. vacation in a glass.  Sangria is a proven remedy to long days at work and too much time in the city.  Plus drinking red wine in moderation promotes good cholesterol and protects against arterial damaging.
