Agua de Valencia

City Life, Cuisine Comments (0)

Raise a glass to the metropolitan side of our stylish city with a Valencian cocktail.

Agua de Valencia was apparently concocted by a barman who was challenged to invent an alternative to what regulars called ‘Agua de Bilbao’ – aka cava. It has three types of alcohol and the all-important local ingredient – orange juice. Try it as an aperitif or a celebratory tipple: that bubbly will make your visit feel extra special.

You will need:

  • Cava or champagne
  • Vodka
  • Gin
  • Orange juice
  • Broad cocktail glasses
  • Ice
  • Sliced orange for decoration

For a party-sized pitcher of the cocktail, make as follows:

Pour one glass of orange juice into a large jug

Add an entire bottle of bubbly

Mix in one glass of vodka and one glass of gin (glass, not 50ml measure)

Add sugar to taste.

Serve with cubed or crushed ice in a broad cocktail glass, adding a thin slice of Valencian orange to finish.
