I was recently given a bottle of lovely Brut Spanish Cava as a gift. The problem is I am more of a sweet bubbles kind of girl (think Moscato d'Asti). Any suggestions on how I can use this? Sweet cocktails? Other ideas?

drbabs has a nice recipe for plum prosecco sorbet, just sub the cava for the prosecco.

If you like it sweeter, just make some variation of a Kir Royale. A Kir Royale is champagne with a little creme de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) in the bottom of the glass. Take whatever good-quality fruit liqueur you have available and put an ounce in the bottom of a champagne flute. Top with the cava and enjoy!
