Sparkling Sangria

Sparkling SangriaMichael Chiarello is a genius, especially with this sangria. I was able to use the wedding brandy in it, which was particularly nice.   I served this to start the party for the Foodbuzz 24x24: A Gathering of Girlfriends with great success.  It was refreshing and the fruit flavors were lovely.  Just right for summer. 

Sparkling Sangria

1 cup brandy
½ cup orange liqueur
¼ cup sugar, super fine
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 pint raspberries
1 lime, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
2 bottles sparkling wine or cava, chilled

In a large pitcher, combine the brandy, and orange liqueur. Pour in the sugar, stir or shake the pitcher thoroughly to mix until the sugar dissolves. Add all the fruit at once. Add the cava and serve as is or on ice.
