When the weather is hot, is there anything better than a refreshing cocktail? Not if you ask me. A cocktail that can be made at home with a couple of simple ingredients is even better!
Peaches are at their peak in the summer, and they make for a refreshing drink when blended together and topped off with some bubbly champagne or sparkling water! With this recipe, you can enjoy a special cocktail on any night of the week or even with your Sunday Brunch.
Things You'll Need
2 large peaches, peeled, sliced and pitted
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons sugar
Champagne or Prosecco for a traditional bellini cocktail
Sparkling water for non-alcoholic bellinis
Step 1: Puree peaches.
Puree peach slices in the food processor with sugar and lemon juice.
Step 2: Strain Peach Puree.
Strain the peach puree through a fine mesh strainer and discard pulp. You should be left with about 1/2 cup of juice.
Step 3: Divide peach puree into glasses.
Pour half of the strained peach puree into each glass.
Step 4: Pour champagne into each glass.
Pour champagne into each glass until full. Garnish with a fresh peach slice.
For a non-alcoholic version, simply swap the champagne for sparkling water!
