Oh boy, do I have something wonderful for you today, a Peach Bellini! Yes, I know that a Bellini is always made with peaches, I just wanted to make it obvious for anyone that may not know that. Do you remember those totally delicious Peaches and Cream Napoleons that I made the other day? Here, let me refresh your memory .
Do you see all of that wonderful peach filling? I had quite a bit left over and I didn't want it to go to waste, it was way too delicious for that. So I started thinking, what can I do with this yummy peach puree? Make another batch of napoleons, or maybe a Bellini!!! Those are made with pureed peaches, so that should work!
Now before all of you cocktail purist start pitching a hissy fit, the recipe below is written the correct way. A traditional Bellini is a mixture of Prosecco (Italian sparkling wine) and white peaches. They originally added raspberry or cherry juice to give it a pink glow. Well I didn't have white peaches, so mine is.....well.....peach colored, so I did not try to make it pink.
How to make a Peach Bellini Cocktail
Divide the pureed peaches between 4 champagne flutes.
Carefully, and slowly pour in your Prosecco. It WILL bubble up. Let the bubbles go down, and continue filling the glass. Gently stir to combine.
- If you would like a non-alcoholic version, substitute sparkling juice or seltzer.
- The actual measurements will be determined by the size of your glasses, so I guessed that two cups of peaches would make four drinks. Why four? Because an open bottle of Prosecco will not keep. It's bubbly like champagne and should be used all at once. As you can see, my glasses are not traditional champagne glasses, so amounts may vary.
- Frozen peaches should works as well in this recipe.
I do not like champagne... never have...never will! I do really like this Cupcake Prosecco. It is sweeter, and lighter tasting than champagne, and does not overpower the peaches. No, I was not paid to say that, I just really do like it.
