Give your cocktail routine a wake up! Sweet carrot juice and floral cardamom pods create a refreshing spin on the Mimosa. Perfect for brunch, mix a big batch of the juice and syrup ahead of time in a pitcher then top off with sparkling wine before serving. Watch our how-to video.
In a small saucepan, combine cardamom, sugar and 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. Strain syrup through a fine-mesh strainer and refrigerate until cold before using. Makes about 1/2 cup syrup. Syrup can be made in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
Pour 1 tablespoon syrup into each of 2 sparkling wine glasses or other small glasses. Divide carrot juice and sparkling wine between the glasses and serve.
