Cava Sangria

**found in September 2010 issue of Bon Appetit 

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
