Refreshing Cocktail Drink Recipes for Summer

With warmer weather upon us, there’s nothing like cooling down with a bubbly cocktail. This summer, think outside the flute with cocktails from Freixenet Cava. Made in the traditional méthode champenoise, Cava bubbles last longer than Prosecco and it is easy to balance with most fruit flavors, giving you the perfect complement to any fruity cocktail of your choice. So whether you are planning an afternoon by the pool or a dinner party with friends al fresco, a summertime cocktail made with Freixenet Cava is the perfect thing to serve.

Sweet Sparkling Watermelon Cocktail Recipe

1 watermelon
1 bottle of Freixenet Sweet Cuvée Cava

Cut 1/4th off the top off a seedless watermelon. Scoop out the fruit and purée. Put 2 tbsp in a wine glass, and top off with Freixenet Sweet Cuvée Cava. Pour the remaining purée back in the hollow watermelon to enjoy throughout the day.

Sparkling Sorbet Cocktail Recipe

1 scoop raspberry sorbet
2-3 raspberries
Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava

3 oz triple sec
3 oz brandy
