 Sparkling Strawberry Kiwi Sangria 

  • 1 lb strawberries
  • 1 lb kiwis
  • 1 cup light rum
  • 1 bottle white wine (such as sauvignon blanc)
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine, chilled (such as cava)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 oranges
  • A pitcher or other large container

  1. Hull the strawberries and cut them in half. Peel the kiwis and cut them into slices.
  2. Combine half of the halved strawberries, the sugar, and the water in a saucepan, and turn the heat up to medium. Bring the mixture to a boil and then let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the strawberries seem like they’re about to fall apart. Let cool for a few minutes, and then, using a mesh sieve, strain the strawberry goodness into a bowl. Place the syrup in the refrigerator to cool.
  3. Combine the kiwi slices and the remaining strawberries in a pitcher, and add the rum, white wine, strawberry syrup, and the juice of three oranges*. Stir well and then refrigerate for four hours.
  4. When you’re ready to serve, add three-quarters of the chilled sparkling wine to the pitcher. Pour into glasses and spoon in fruit, topping off each glass with remaining champagne.

*Can substitute with a few splashes of bottled orange juice, or even lemonade, for the fresh orange juice.
