While this is not exactly my recipe, I wanted to share this traditional peach bellini made with Prosecco and yummy peach puree as it’s one of my favourite summer cocktails. This is a light drink, low-sugar drink.
1 can peaches in juice (no added sugar)
1 bottle of dry Prosecco (other sparkling wine can be used)
Mint and sliced peaches for garnish
Add soft peahes and some of the juice to a blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until using.
Make sure Prosecco is nice and cold or add a few ice cubes to the glasses. To make bellini cocktail, you have two options.
Option 1: add 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons of peach puree to the bottom of a glass and fill up quarter of the glass with sparkling wine. Stir and once the bubbles fizzle out, fill up the rest of the glass and stir gently. If you like it sweeter, you can add more puree.
Option 2: make a bellini pitcher by combining 2 cups of peach puree with all of the prosecco in a glass jug. Make sure to add prosecco in batches to avoid too much fizzing. You can add a few ice cubes to keep it nice and cold.
Make it a little stronger: If you want to turn it up a notch, you could add half a shot of peach liquier or Cointreauto (for a hint of citrus) to the glass.
