Spain is famously known for their sangria, a delicious cocktail made with either red wine or white wine. In this post, I will show you how to make a Spanish cava sangria recipe. This sangria is made with fresh fruits and cava, Spain´s famous sparkling wine. This cava sangria has an insane flavor to it, seriously folks, you can´t even taste the alcohol (what!!!). Made with a very simple blend of fruits and a hint of Spanish brandy. No joke here, this is the BEST sangria I have ever tasted, hands down. The best part about this cava sangria, is that it doesn´t have to sit in the fridge for a couple hours. Most sangrias call for this, so all the flavors develop. Thanks to the sparkles in the cava, all the flavors instantly develop.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Remove the skin from the kiwis and cut into 1/4 inch thick rounds, cut the strawberries into 1/4 inch thick rounds as well and cut the grapes in half lengthwise, add all the cut fruits into a large pitcher
Pour in a 1/2 cup of orange juice into the pitcher with the fruits, also add in 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice, a 1/4 cup of brandy and a 1/4 cup of sugar, gently mix everything together until the sugar dissolves
Once everything is well mixed, slowly pour in a 750ml bottle of Spanish cava, then give it a gentle mix to bring all the flavors together
To serve the cava sangria, add ice cubes into a wine glass, pour in the sangria, making sure to add some of the fruit in the pitcher and garnish with a slice of orange, cheers!
