8 Servings. Cava, the Spanish sparkling wine, gives the sangria an effervescent kick.
4 cups diced assorted fresh fruit (such as strawberries, peaches and grapes)
2 small oranges, thinly sliced, seeded.
1/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup peach liquor
1/2 cup white grape juice
4 small fresh mint sprigs
2 750-ml bottles chilled Cava or other sparkling white wine.
Combine diced fruit, sliced oranges, brandy liqueur, grape juice and mint in a large pitcher. Chill at least 1 hour ahead. Can be made 3 hours ahead. Cover; keep chilled. Pour wine over fruit mixture. Stir to blend. Ladle Sangria into glasses.
Or, for a stronger sangria, let the fruit soak up the alcohol while chilling in the fridge.
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
