Behold the Jersey Shore Champagne Cocktail-It's Italian, it's orange and it's a "blast in a glass!" HO!!!! Now obviously this drink is too classy for the cast, but you need a cocktail that says, "Even though I happen to be watching this mindless drivel, I am a highly cultured and intelligent individual." Bottoms up! (That's what The Situation said!!!)
Jersey Shore Champagne Cocktail
1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
½ ounce Vanilla Simple Syrup (see recipe below)

½ cup sugar
½ cup water
1 whole vanilla bean (seeds scraped out)
