Agua de Valencia is a drink that combines the fresh, citrus flavor of orange with that of three well-known beverages that will be described below. It was made for the first time in a well-known bar in the Valencian capital, hence its name. It is a cocktail to sit quietly and consume it little by little, enjoying each sip.
