Cava is made in the same way as champagne. Not many sparkling wines use the same method and, to me, champagne and cava definitely have the edge over prosecco or other sparkling wines. Cava has always been a celebration drink in Spain, but with prices being so aordable these days I thought I could make a sangria with it. The result is so refreshing, fruity and sharp.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 orange
200g soft brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
10 strawberries, Quartered
1 pear, Cored and roughly chopped
1 peach, roughly chopped
200ml brandy
200ml cointreau
1 x 75 cl bottle spanish cava brut
fresh mint leaves

Method

  1. Refrigerate your glasses so that you can enjoy your drink as cold as possible.
  2. Remove the zest of the orange in long strips. Squeeze the juice into a saucepan with the strips of zest, the sugar, cinnamon stick, the strawberries and the chopped pear and peach. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 minute. Pour into a 2-litre jug with the brandy and Cointreau, stir with a wooden spoon and put in the fridge to chill until completely cold.
  3. Stir the chilled mixture again and then pour 3 Tbsp into each glass. Top up with the fizzy cava, serve with a mint leaf and enjoy it while it lasts.
