The Valencia Cocktail was a semi-popular cocktail during the early and middle parts of the 1900's but has since lost some steam. The drink is quite simple, yet delicious, with its mixture of apricot brandy and orange juice. It is the orange bitters that really set it off, though.

In its time this was known as the Valencia Cocktail #1. To make a Valencia Cocktail #2 (or Valencia Royale) shake the same drink, strain it into a champagne flute, then top it off with an extra dry Champagne.
