Ever since I returned from Spain in January from the Tile of Spain trip, I have been coveting this cocktail. While I am sure the romance and charm surrounding it had to do with the fresh Valencia oranges and the beautiful Spanish city where it was created, yet I thought it was worth a try on my own.
Agua De Valencia Cocktail is a Spanish drink and is known as “Valencian Water.” The origin of this cocktail comes from the bar Café Madrid de Valencia, Spain. In 1959, Constante Gil first served this amazing cocktail. Gin, orange juice, vodka, and Champagne are the basic ingredients of the famous Agua De Valencia Cocktail.
