Drink in Valencia

Explore the local white wine varietals. Be brave. Taste varietals you won’t taste anywhere else.

Look for Merseguera, Malvasia, Pedro Ximenez, or Macebo. Although you can certainly find and enjoy a good Chardonnay, Semillon, or my absolute least favorite: Sauvignon Blanc.  Life is more fun when you taste the local stuff. If your feeling really brave, try a rose’.

When all else fails, there is always vermut and craft beers.

And, on a non-alcoholic note, the fresh orange juice that can be found everywhere is fantastic.

For a refreshing local drink, try the Agua de Valencia. Warning:  It is served by the pitcher and it tastes so refreshing on a hot day that you might accidentally over imbibe.

Highly recommend the quirky “Cafe de las Horas” for a traditional Agua de Valencia.

But, if you want to make it a home:

Squeeze a few oranges into a pitcher. 200ml

Add a bottle of cava

Add 50ml each of vodka and gin

Add a pinch of sugar if needed.

Add ice, stir & serve. Enjoy!
