Kumquat Champagne Cocktail

Julip Made kumquat champagne cocktail3 Kumquats are a delightful, surprising fruit.  Their tart, sweet combo makes them easy to pop in your mouth.  They are great for topping salads or yogurt, but even better in this kumquat champagne cocktail.  Tip... after you make the simple syrup, save the candied kumquats as garnish for a dessert.
