Pinkies Up! - Cava Chameleon

When Baby and I were in Valencia last week, we naturally succumbed to bubbly cava found everywhere in Spain. In a fit of whimsy, we concocted this drink on our own. Cheers!

Cava Chameleon
1 oz vodka
1 oz clementine or tangerine juice, but orange is okay
2 oz cava
Trickle of grenadine
Mint, for garnish

Shake vodka and juice briskly in a shaker filled with ice. Strain, pouring contents in a red wine glass filled with more ice. Top with golden cava, slowly add the grenadine, stick in a sprig of mint and watch it change colors like a chameleon. So to paraphrase the 80's sensation band Culture Club, lovin' would be easy if your colors were like my, gold, and green. By George...!
