Agua de Valencia – Perfect Summer Drink
Agua de Valencia is an extremely popular drink here, taking advantage of one Valencia’s prime exports — oranges.
I ordered it at an outdoor bar recently and instantly fell in love. “I’m going to find out how to make this as soon as I get home!”
Agua de Valencia
1 cup (18cl) freshly squeezed orange juice
1 bottle (70cl) sparkling, semi-dry wine
1/2 cup vodka + gin (10cl)
Sugar to taste
Refrigerate for a couple hours (or ice)
If you’re like me, you’re looking at that recipe thinking … wine, vodka and gin?! That’s expensive… and, squeezing oranges is messy without some kind of fancy press. Screw it.
