Agua de Valencia Vodka and Gin 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.
