Orange Cardamom Bellini
Adapted from Food Network
|3 small oranges, zested into strips|
|10 whole cardamom pods, gently cracked with the side of a knife|
|1 cup sugar|
|2 cups water|
|2 bottles Prosecco|
Place all ingredients except Prosecco in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes until thickened and syrupy. Strain and allow syrup to cool fully before use.
Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of orange-cardamom syrup into an empty Champagne flute. Fill each glass with chilled Prosecco and serve.
