We have visited Madrid a few times, and when its hot, I've seen people drinking a long red drink, can anyone tell me the name of it and what it is? Also, how do I say 'excuse me' to get someones attention in a bar or restaurant, I don't speak any Spanish!

Yes, I think it is Tinto de Verano (summer wine). Sometimes it comes per-made out of a tap (like a beer pump) but the best is made by the bar. Red wine with lemonade (Casera), some bars use limon (similar to Fanta lemon).
