Toast with Cava

Talking of traditions, you can consider celebrating the New Year's Eve (NYE) with Cava (the Spanish version of champagne) as a toast. It is one of the most popular beverages, which is believed to bring in good luck and wealth for the year ahead. Normally, cava is consumed with a gold object like a coin at the bottom of the glass.
