It’s almost summer. People start wearing sunglasses and having lunch in parks.
Soon the terraces will be filled with people drinking Aperol, Pimms and… Cava.
Perfect time for Freixenet to launch Ice, a new Cava designed to be enjoyed on ice.
This sparkling wine is a blend of Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada grape varieties with a touch of Chardonnay, revealing notes of peaches, flowers and nuances of tropical fruits.
The leading Spanish producer is not the first one to give in to the sparkling wine over ice category – LVMH set the trend back in 2011 with Moet & Chandon’s Ice Impérial Champagne.
Perfect for summer cocktails or garnished with mint leaves or a twist of lime, the white bottle is already available in the UK. No need to wait until the end of Spring!
BONUS! Here’s a little recipe for you lucky guys: mix 150ml of Freixenet Ice with 150ml of St-Germain elderflower liqueur over ice. Garnish with two cucumber ribbons and… Voila!
