Video: How to Make Agua de Valencia (aka Your New Fave Cocktail)

Also known as Valencian Water, this cocktail made with fresh orange juice, champagne, vodka, and gin can be served in a pitcher. The name Valencia comes from the Valencia orange named after the city in Spain, but they are actually grown in America. The Valencia orange is a hybrid fruit, a cross between a local orange variety and a sweet orange from Spain. This cocktail is simple to make and only gets better as it sits and hangs out in the fridge. And follow along here!
