Bring to a low boil and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat and allow to simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside and cool completely. 

For each guest: combine 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup sparkling water, 1/8th cup Holiday Wassail cocktail mix, 3 Tbsp simple syrup as prepared above.
