  1. To prepare Cinnamon Honey-Green Tea Syrup: Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and add green tea bags; let steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and stir in honey. Let cool 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Stir in cinnamon just before using. Makes about 1½ cups.
  2. To prepare an individual cocktail: Combine 1 ounce of the honey syrup and Aperol in a wine glass. Top with sparkling wine. Add ice, if using. Garnish with clementine slices.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the Honey Syrup (Step 1; without the cinnamon) for up to 1 week. Stir in cinnamon just before using.
