Although today tapas may no longer be called on to cover (tapar) your drink to protect from sherry-loving fruit flies, as they once did in 13th century Spain, these appetizer-sized bites are still the perfect snack or meal to accompany any drink.

This weekend, cook up as many different tapas as you can, mix a big pitcher of sangria, and channel the Spanish tapas spirit late into the night.
