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
10 cl of gin
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?! Sounds like a winner!
