Celebrate the Holidays with Sparkling Wine

November 20, 2017

With the holidays here, it is time to celebrate, and sparkling wines go hand-in-hand with special occasions. If you are looking for something new to serve this year, consider swapping your usual bubbles for Cava, a delicious and wallet-friendly Spanish sparkling wine that is made using the same traditional methods as Champagne.

 

One Cava producer offering top-quality sparkling wines is Poema. Their wines are made from sustainably farmed grapes, and are available at affordable prices. Their Poema Cava Brut (SRP: $12.99) is a fine choice for your cocktail hour. Its fresh citrus and granny smith apple aromas and toasty notes are a good match with light tapas, oysters, and seafood. It also makes for delicious sparkling cocktails, such as the Belle of the Ball.

 

Belle of the Ball

4-ounces Poema Cava Brut

1/2-ounce Belle de Brillet Pear Liqueur

Splash of orange liqueur

 

Chill Cava and Pear Liqueur beforehand. Then, pour both ingredients into a flute. Top off with a splash of orange liqueur.

 

For those who like things a little bit sweeter, there is Poema’s Cava Extra Dry (SRP: $12.99). Served as an aperitif or paired with passed appetizers and starters, its crisp aromas of green apples, limestone, and spring flowers offer a trace of sweetness that is well balanced by a crisp finish.

 

Whether you are having a formal celebration or an impromptu casual party, be sure to celebrate the right way this holiday season -- with sparkling wines that won’t disappoint your guests.
