Garden Cocktails: Peach Bellini
It isn’t surprising news—peaches are in season until September. In the last throes of the summer, we’ll be looking back on these lush days and lush stone fruits a little wistfully. Peaches for every meal would be perfect…breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and cocktails. The trees grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Sounds like they grow well in California…Get yourself a tree! But first, have a drink.
How many Bellinis have you had? Ever make it with fresh peaches? Invite a friend and celebrate the summer with this easy garden cocktail.
Fresh Peach Bellini (for the two of you)
2 ripe but not squishy white peaches, seed removed, diced (they smell so good)
1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ t honey
1 bottle Prosecco
Put the first three ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree. Press the mixture through a sieve. Put 2 tablespoons of the puree into each champagne coupe and fill with cold Prosecco. Drink. Repeat.
Be full of praise for peaches, Prosecco and summer.
