Step 1

In a medium saucepan bring cranberries, honey, water, orange juice and sage leaves to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the cranberries are tender but haven’t burst, about 10 minutes.

Stir in the fresh orange zest and let cool. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Save a few cranberries for garnish.

To assemble place 1 to 2 tablespoons of the simple syrup in each glass and top with champagne or sparkling wine.
