7medium oranges, such as Valencia, cara cara, or blood oranges
2cupsBrut Cava (Spanish sparkling wine)
Juice the oranges: Set aside 1 orange for your garnish. Juice the remaining oranges to yield 2 cups. If you want a smoother drink, pour the orange juice through a sieve to remove the pulp.
Mix: In a large pitcher, gently stir together the orange juice, cava, vodka, and gin until combined.
Chill: Set the mixture in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.
Garnish and serve: Slice the reserved orange into thin rounds, or use a vegetable peeler or citrus zester to extract thin strips of orange peel for garnish. Fill large wine glasses with ice and pour in the Agua de València. Garnish with the orange slices or orange twist, and enjoy.
Stir the cocktail gently to preserve the carbonation of the cava.
On a particularly hot day, you can chill your serving glasses in your freezer if there’s space, or using ice water (fill each glass with ice water, then dump before adding ice and the cocktail). It will help keep the cocktail cold for longer and give the glasses a festive frosty look.
