Best European Wine book in the world - Gourmand cook book awards 2019

I’m so happy to anounce that the new print of the cava book (Swedish version), since last week can be called

Best European wine book in the world!!

It won the title last week when Gourmand cook book awards were held in Macau, outside Hongkong.
I must thank all of you that have sent your gratulations and happy wishes the last week! It really warms my heart and makes all the work put into the book, both by Andréas and me, feel sooo worth it.

I hope the title will help spread the love for Spanish sparkling wine even more!

Cava Sangria, because it is almost summer!

Today we have had very nice weather indeed and the sun has been shining from a bule sky. Nothing makes me think of vaccation more than such weather. So I thought I'd give you a sugestion on how to make a nice Cava Sangria. Sangria is a very personal thing and of course you can make it how ever you want and ad what ever fruits and spirits you like. This is just an example to get you started.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups well chilled sparkling mineral water or 7up/sprite (depending on how fresh/sweet you want it)

  • 1 cup well chilled brandy/cognac/rom (I personally like rom)

  • 2 table spoons of sugar

  • 2 (750-ml) bottles well chilled Cava (brut nature is my sugestion if you don't want it super sweet)

  • Sliced oranges and strawberries (and maybe some mintleafes)

Mix mineral water/7up with the spirit of your choice and some sugar. Mix until the sugar disolves. Then pour it over ice and fruit and ad the chilled cava. Ready to be served!

Enjoy!
