Cava Sangria

Recipe by

Deciding between red and white sangria? We say sparkling! Yes, you can make a refreshing pitcher of sangria with Cava – Spain’s beloved sparkling wine. In this recipe, the team at Lil’ Ba-Ba-Reeba! likes using Santa Monica Cava, but you can try it with your favorite bottle instead.

Bonus tip: If you’re hosting this holiday season, add a Spanish tradition to your New Year’s Eve and serve the Cava Sangria with skewers of 12 grapes just like Lil’ Ba-Ba-Reeba! Eat the grapes during the 12 strokes of midnight to mark 12 months of fortune in the New Year.
