Ingredients

1/2 cup strained Cranberry Concord Syrup, recipe follows

One 750-milliliter bottle chilled sparkling wine 

Cranberry Concord Syrup:

1 pound frozen cranberries

1 1/4 cups concord grape jam 

3/4 cup concord grape juice 

1/3 cup sugar 

One 3-inch strip orange zest 

Directions

  1. Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of the Cranberry Concord Syrup into champagne flutes and top with sparkling wine. Stir gently and serve.

Cranberry Concord Syrup:

  1. Combine the cranberries, grape jam, grape juice, sugar and orange zest in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries are very soft and easily break apart when pushed with a wooden spoon, about 20 minutes. Do not simmer too hard or the sauce may boil over. Let cool, then strain the syrup into a small pitcher.
