Bellini Bar

When I get together with my friends I always feel like it’s more exciting when we make a specialty drink rather than having ordinary beer or bottle of wine. We have a couple of favorite drink choices, but I’m always up for trying something new.

Bellinis appealed to me because…let’s face it…I like champagne. We added frozen fruit which I think is a great idea during the winter because you don’t need to worry about finding fresh, in season fruit. And, what a great drink to start the evening!!

I love this recipe because it’s fun for a girls night in. You can make a few different fruit purees, then let your friends make their own drinks. We went with strawberry and peach, but blueberry and raspberry would be great choices too! If you’re feeling wild you could mix the fruits together and that would taste good too, I know, I tried. :)

Here's what you'll need

Start by pulsing frozen peaches, sugar syrup and orange peel. Transfer to a bowl.

Next pulse the frozen strawberries with sugar syrup. Transfer to another bowl

When you're ready to serve, put a couple tablespoons of the fruit puree into champagne flutes then fill with Prosecco

You can personalize these by using your favorite fruits. A really fun drink!
