Blood Orange- Aperol Champagne Cocktail

Although the color in the photo looks a little garish, this Champagne cocktail was gorgeous in person! The recipe comes from Food Network magazine and is only slightly altered. This would be a beautiful drink to serve on Christmas.

Simple Syrup
Orange Bitters
Sparkling Wine

Combine 1T  Aperol, 1 t simple syrup,  3T  blood orange juice and a dash of bitters in a shaker filled with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass and top off with some sparkling wine. Add a twist of blood orange peel. Makes 1 cocktail.
