Description
This yummy cocktail features the plumcot, which comes in many different colors, so your cocktail may be different each time you make it!

Preparation
Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to boil in small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat and cool. Cover and refrigerate.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove lemon peel (yellow part only) lengthwise in eight 1/4- to 1/2-inch-wide strips and set aside. Juice lemons. Place Plumcots, 6 tablespoons simple syrup, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in food processor; puree until small flecks of Plumcot remain. Strain. 

Measure 3 tablespoons Plumcot puree into each of 8 Champagne glasses. Fill with sparkling wine. Drizzle 2 to 3 drops lemon juice over. Garnish with lemon peel.
