This cocktail's name is a play on Champagne terminology. Blanc de Noirs refers to Champagne made with 100 percent Pinot Noir grapes; Blanc de Blancs are Champagnes made with only Chardonnay. Cava, a Spanish sparkling wine made from a blend of grapes, has a light, refreshing quality that works well with strawberries, or fraises.
