* Blend quarter of peach with splash of peach liqueur and dash of peach bitters. Pour into glass, add Cava, garnish with slice of peach or peach ball

* Shot of vodka, shot of raspberry liqueur. Add squeeze of lime, then Cava

* Half-shot of gin, half shot of passion fruit juice, top up with Cava

* Add raspberry liqueur to Cava and a few fresh raspberries to garnish

* Mix Cava with pomegranate juice and garnish with pomegranate seeds

* One part Peach Schnapps to three parts Cava

* Port and Cava – delicious – one third port to two thirds Cava

* Martini (red or white vermouth) one third, to Cava two thirds.

If you like sparkling wine as it comes, just float a delicate blue borage flower on the top or drape a flamboyant orange or red nasturtium over the glass edge.
