Thirsty Thursday: Sparkling Wine Sangria Cocktail

Sparkling Wine Sangria

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too.

Last week we shared a recipe for our Prosecco Gold Rush Cocktail; this week we’re back with another bubbly-based concoction to ring in the new year.

When the clock strikes midnight, you can toast with the usual champagne or, better yet, try something new. Raise a glass of sweet, peach-infused sangria made with Cava, a Spanish sparkling wine. A celebration of all things festive, the Sparkling Wine Sangria combines two classic cocktails into one “ooo” and “ahh”-inspiring sip. Bottoms up, folks. 

Sparkling Wine Sangria
12 servings

Ingredients: 
2 cups well chilled seltzer or sparkling mineral water
1 cup well chilled peach brandy
1 cup superfine sugar
2 (750-ml) bottles well chilled Cava (Spanish sparkling wine)
About 4 cups assorted berries, such as blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, rinsed and drained, for serving

Directions: 
Stir the seltzer, brandy, and sugar together in a punch bowl. When the sugar is dissolved, uncork the sparkling wine and pour it gently into the bowl. Float about half the berries in the sangria and use the rest to decorate individual glasses.
