Recipe from Cooking Light

Flavor this cava-and-brandy-based sangria with blueberries, cherries, raspberries, strawberries, nectarine, and apricot nectar for a sweet summer cocktail that tastes as good as it looks.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup quartered small strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped nectarine (about 1)
  • 1/3 cup brandy
  • 1 cup apricot nectar, chilled
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle cava, chilled

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large pitcher, and chill for at least 2 hours. Stir in 1 cup nectar and wine. Serve immediately.

Notes

Cava is a Spanish sparkling wine with less acidity than Champagne; you may substitute another sparkling wine, such as prosecco, if you prefer. Top each beverage with a mint sprig for a fragrant garnish.
