I’ve talked a lot about how brunch is a big deal in this house. I make it every weekend no matter what is going on. Since our weeks are always so crazy, it’s a fantastic time to just sit and enjoy each other’s company. This week happened to be a little more crazy than usual, so I thought we might need something a little stronger to go with our brunch. So I brought out the old Italian favorite, the peach bellini. We already had a bottle of prosecco in the house and farm fresh peaches, so the timing was perfect!
I finished the peach bellini with a pretty little peach slice on each glass for garnish. Oh my goodness, they looked great and tasted even better. Marc and I toasted the end of a super busy week and enjoyed our adult beverages with brunch. I stirred the peach bellini after we had our toast so that there was that yummy puree in every sip. The peach puree worked so well with the bubbly prosecco. Hope you all enjoy this classic Italian cocktail too! xoxo
These peach bellini drinks are so refreshing on a warm night! They're really simple to make with gorgeous summer peaches and prosecco.
- 1 whole peach pitted and diced small, plus 4 additional slices for garnish
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon water
- 1 bottle prosecco chilled
- Combine the diced peach, cinnamon, brown sugar and water in a blender. Puree it all together into a smooth, thick mixture. It should yield about 1 cup of puree. Get out 4 champagne flutes and pour 1/4 cup of puree into the bottom of each glass. Fill them all the rest of the way with the chilled prosecco and garnish each of the glasses with a peach slice. Serve immediately and enjoy!
