for the cocktail glass rim:
On a small saucer add 1 tbs sugar, 1/4 tsp cardamom, 1/4 tsp of lemon zest. Next, in a chilled champagne glass, coup glass or wine glass, rub the rim with a lemon and dip the rim in a bowl with sugar, cardamom spice, and lemon zest.

for the cocktail:
Add the cardamom simple syrup, then 2 dashes of bitters, 1 tsp lemon juice (1 squeeze) and top it off with chilled Champagne/prosecco/or sparkling wine of your choice.

Drink should be enjoyed immediately after preparation. The simple syrup can be stored for 1 week if refrigerated.
tips
Make sure you sugar the rim before you make the drink.

The simple syrup can be made a day ahead. It can also be added to coffee or tea for a deliciously sweet cardamom flavor.
