Ingredients
  • 10 cardamom pods lightly crushed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup carrot juice chilled
  • 1/2 cup sparkling white wine chilled
Method

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, about 1 minute. 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.
