I have a new favorite summer cocktail! It's made with a mint simple syrup, orange juice and Champagne! You can find the recipe here. I made the mint simple syrup but only used about a half cup in each pitcher. The first time I made it I used the whole two cups and it was way too sweet. Now I can make four pitchers with the one recipe for simple syrup, I just save it in a jar in the fridge and I'm ready to make it any time we have guests over. I also don't zest the fruit, just cut it up and throw it in like Giada does in the recipe. I hope you'll try it. It's very refreshing and great to serve at parties!
