For the Orange-Cardamom Syrup:
- 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 syrup ingredients 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 each empty Champagne flute.
Fill each glass with chilled Prosecco and serve.
