DIRECTIONS

  • SIMPLE SYRUP:
  • Stir together syrup ingredients in a small saucepan; boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally; altogether about 35 minutes until reduced to about 1 1/4 cups syrup.
  • SPARKLER:
  • Pour syrup into tall glass, add wine and liqueur; stir, add ice cubes and lemon wedge if desired.
  • NON-ALCOHOLIC VERSIONS:
  • Instead of wine, use apple juice or apple cider for a totally different kick. A splash of 7-Up (white) soda will cut the wine nicely, too.
