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?

How about http://www.epicurious.com... or http://www.epicurious.com... or a variation on a Bellini?
I made this drink from Mark Bittman over Thanksgiving! Try it: http://www.nytimes.com...
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!
A trick borrowed from applesauce cake (only crazier).
