Last weekend we went to Valencia for the weekend. We were there for a few days only, but it felt like a full summer holiday! Every city inspires us in a different way and Valencia inspired us to a a-ma-zing summer cocktail.
The combination between sun, beach, delicious pinchos, local prosecco (seriously cheap and good) and architecture, is what made us so intense happy in Valencia. Everything what we needed after spending some cold days back in the Netherlands.
Valencia treated us well, when we arrived it was 27° and the rest of the days it was around 24°. On the second day we went to the beach. After a long warm beach day we ordered a cold fresh drink: Aqua di Valencia at the bar of La Mas Bonita. If you are looking for a nice alcoholic refreshment then this is the summer cocktail for you! (and so easy to prepare!)
» 1/4 liter Prosecco
» 3/4 liter Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
» 100 ml Vodka
» 100 ml Gin
» 50 g Brown Sugar
» 4 Strawberries
How to make it:
Put a good amount of ice into a large glass. Add the brown sugar. Cut the strawberries into small pieces. Add the strawberries, gin, vodka, prosecco and fresh orange juice Cava.
From now on this is our favorite summer cocktail for this summer!
