You might think the Peach Bellini hails from the Peach State, but in fact, it comes from a medieval Italian recipe. Prosecco is a bubbly dry Italian wine with a cornucopia of sweet fruit flavors. Peaches are beloved in Italy for their sweetness and mild acidity. Together, these two ingredients make Peach Bellini, a truly festive, flavorful beverage fizzing with fruitiness and positively pink with playfulness. No other brew can make you feel so sunny!
Ingredients• 4 medium ripe peaches, plus a few peach slices for garnish, if desired • 1 bottle Prosecco, chilled
Peel the peaches and slice them in half, removing the pits.
Put the peeled peaches into a blender or a food processor, and then blend them until it forms a smooth purée.
The peach purée is best when it is served chilled, so put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to chill.
Once you’re ready to serve, pour 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of the chilled peach purée into each champagne flute.
Pour the chilled Prosecco, being careful not to overflow.
Stir the Prosecco and peach purée until it is mixed.
Garnish the drink with another splash of prosecco and add a peach slice to the rim.
