Freixenet Sweet Cuvée Sangria

IMG_6729Summer may be dwindling but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate every last second we have, right? With Freixenet Cava, you can sip this sweet cuvée and enjoy the rest of the warm summer days.

Cordon Negro Sweet Cuvée is simply irresistible! Filled with aromas of peaches, cream, and citrus with tons of bubbles, and a delectable, lingering finish. This is an ideal sipping wine for memorable toasts and pleasant parties, but also mixes well with in sangria and sparkling cocktails!

I recently joined my mom at the tiki bar in her backyard, where we enjoyed this fun Sweet Cuvée Blood Orange Sangria. Using a San Pelligrino Sparkling Beverage (blood orange) and a bottle of this beautiful cava, you can have yourself one fun summer sipper (just be sure to add a bit of triple sec and lots of fruit).
