Bellinis

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Prep: 4 minutesIn 1948, a bartender with a love for white peaches invented the Bellini at Harry's Bar in Venice. While the original consisted of only white peach purée and sweet sparkling wine, the cocktail has taken many twists and turns over time. Instead of white peaches, we use readily available frozen peaches so that you can enjoy the beverage year-round. A light, fruity, sparkling wine, such as Asti spumante, tastes best with the sweet peach purée.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen peach slices, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups chilled peach nectar
  • 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur (such as Cointreau)
  • 3/4 cup chilled sweet sparkling white wine
