Valencia is true orange growing country, and this recipe is based on fresh orange juice, which is best - try not to use carton or bottled orange juice. And beware, this innocuous-sounding drink is strong! It must be served ice cold - if Cointreau is not available or too expensive - use a local orange liqueur.
- 750 ml spanish sparkling wine (Cava)
- 1⁄2 liter fresh orange juice
- Cointreau liqueur
- ice cube
- Put some ice cubes into a large jug and pour over lots of orange juice. Now add the bottle of cava.
- Once the fizz subsides, stir in a good dash of the cointreau and it´s ready to serve.
- Makes about 2 pints.
I loved this. I used store bought orange juice, though. It was like a mimosa. I made this for ZWT5.
Loved this! I had a handful of fresh Valencia's, almost enough, but did use a little bit of cartoned juice. I drank two (large) glasses yesterday and two more today. Naughty I know, but it is the weekend! Thanks French Tart! Made for the Saucy Senoritas ZWT5.
Pretty hard t o to give this one a 5 stars. Had all the good stuff in it...freshly squeezed orange juice and cointreau. I made this for WT 5 and we loved it.Thanks for posting
