The Bellini is a classic cocktail that originated in Venice, Italy. It is a refreshing and elegant drink that is perfect for special occasions or to enjoy on a warm summer day. The Bellini is made with Prosecco and peach puree, giving it a fruity and bubbly flavor that is sure to please your taste buds.
To make a Bellini, start by selecting ripe and juicy peaches. Peel and pit the peaches, then puree them in a blender or food processor. Once the peaches are pureed, strain the mixture to remove any lumps or chunks. The resulting peach puree should be smooth and silky.
Next, prepare your champagne flutes. Chill them in the refrigerator before serving to ensure that your Bellini stays nice and cold. Once the glasses are chilled, pour a small amount of the peach puree into each glass. The amount will depend on your preference, but a ratio of one part puree to three parts Prosecco is a good starting point.
Finally, top off each glass with Prosecco. The bubbles will mix with the peach puree, creating a beautiful and effervescent drink. Stir gently to combine the two ingredients, being careful not to lose too much of the carbonation.
The Bellini is best enjoyed immediately after it is made. Serve it alongside a light appetizer or as a refreshing aperitif before a meal. The combination of peaches and Prosecco is a winning one, and is sure to impress your guests. Cheers!
