Sparkling Sangria

This refreshing sparkling sangria adds a festive flair to most any occasion.

To serve this to a group, use 1 1/2 cups each of orange juice and lemonade plus six halved slices of each fruit, mixed with a whole bottle of cava. This is not the place to use a really expensive bottle of sparkling wine, since its nuances will be covered up by the flavors of juice. Less-expensive cavas and Proseccos are often a little sweeter, which is fine.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemonade, preferably all fruit
  • 1 slice orange, halved
  • 1 slice of lemon, halved
  • 1/2 cup Prosecco, cava or champagne
  • Bing cherries, for garnish

Preparation

In an 8-ounce juice glass, combine the orange juice, lemonade, orange and lemon slices and stir. Pour in cava just before serving. For garnish, use a long toothpick to skewer a cherry and place it on top of each glass.

Serving Suggestion

Pair this drink with Salmon Pinwheels.
