Champagne Glögg

This glögg, untypically, is served cold.

1 bottle champagne or sparkling wine (dry or semi-dry)

1 cup apple or grape juice

3 tbsp sugar

1 tsp grated orange zest

1-inch chunk of fresh ginger

1 bay leaf

3 cardamom seed pods

1 star anise

Heat juice, sugar and spices. Let steep for an hour or two. Strain. Let cool. Pour a half bar measure of spiced juice in the bottom of champagne glasses, fill with champagne or sparkling wine. (You can adjust juice ratio to taste.) Garnish with a little bit of gold sprinkle or a seasonal flower.
