Cocktail: Virgin Peepmopolitan

A few days ago, [info]sileri asked me for a non-alcoholic Peep cocktail.  Today, I went to see [info]shinyredtype who also prefers her Peeps sober.  So, here is my first virgin, kid-friendly, Peep cocktail: the  Virgin Peepmopolitan

Ingredients for one drink:

Cranberry Juice
Lemon-Lime Seltzer
Bitter Lemon
Orange Simple Syrup (recipe below)
Chick-shaped Peeps
Ice

Instructions:

Put ice in a glass of any size. I used pint glasses
Fill the glass 1/2 of the way with cranberry juice
Fill it the rest of the way up with 1/2 seltzer and 1/2 bitter lemon
Add 1 Tbs orange syrup
Stir with the back of a wooden spoon
Add Peep, serve

Ingredients for Orange Simple Syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup white granulated sugar
2 large oranges, washed and halved with skins on
1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract
1/2 tsp natural orange extract

Instructions for Orange Simple Syrup:
Bring water to a boil
Add sugar and stir. Boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved.
Squeeze in juice from both oranges, then tear up remaining fruit and add to mixture. Stir.
Add extracts.
Boil until syrupy (it will drip slowly off the spoon instead of quickly off)
Strain orange pieces and seeds out of syrup, chill to store.
