Ingredients

  • medium-sized peaches , peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon  (15 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅓-½  cup (109 - 164 g) simple syrup , (recipe  below)
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine or  champagne 
  • fresh mint , for garnishing

Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup  (200 g) sugar
  • 1 cup  (237 ml) water

Instructions

Simple Syrup

  • In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, keep stirring until sugar has dissolved- about 5-7 minutes. Let it cool.

Peach Bellini

  • Place peaches  in a blender and blend until puree- remove and add to jar.

  • Serve with ice cubes. Garnish with mint and sliced peaches.

Notes

  1. Want an alcohol-free version?  Use sparkling water with a splash of lemon juice or  go for equal parts of sparkling water and soda (like 7UP). Ginger ale or sparkling cider makes a great substitute too.
  2. You may remove or not the peach skin. Just be sure to rinse it with water before cutting.
  3. You may replace peach puree with store-bought peach juice or nectar.
  4. To make a Frozen Peach Bellini, freeze the peach puree in an ice cube tray and then add and blend them all with a little juice before you add the sparkling wine.
  5. You may experiment and replace the peach with other fruits like raspberries and strawberries. Or you can go for half peach and half pineapple combo for a more tropical twist.
  6. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
