#FoodFriday A special bottle of cava

Welcome to YQtravelling’s FoodFriday. The day of the week when I show off some of the lovely eats I had while travelling.

Today’s drink was a bottle purchased in Barcelona but drunk in Singapore about 2 years after it was bought.

I bought a bottle of cava from Barcelona’s airport at the end of a business trip (aka press trip).

My interpretation of cava is a Spanish champagne. Only sparkling wines produced in a certain region and a certain method can be called cava.

The bottle was dark green and had a heavy bottom and a wooden cork. I made a promise to drink it only on a very special occasion.

The bottle moved with me to another place, it stood in a corner of my room for a very long while. It seemed like I would never have that special occasion to drink it.

Finally, I did take the bottle out in March 2013. Finally, I was going to travel around the world!

When I got it out eventually, it was covered with thick dust and strong strands of spider web (or was it dust?)

Flutes of cava

Most of the “dryness” of the wine was gone by the time I shared the bottle. Still, it was a good wine for me as it was still sweet and intoxicating.

Do you have a special drink?
