Vegan Darling Clementine

Ingredients

Simple syrup, a common cocktail ingredient, is nothing more than equal parts water and sugar. Herbs, citrus, and spices can be added to the syrup to liven up holiday drinks. To make a virgin version of this drink, substitute sparkling wine with seltzer.

  • 1 cup sugar

6 strips clementine zest, for garnish
