Berry Bellini Cocktail

As prepared by Michelle P,

I concocted these Berry Bellinis for a recent late afternoon gossip session with my sister.  We both love traditional Bellinis – which are made with white peach puree, a dollop of peach schnapps and, champagne or sparkling wine.  However, white peach season has not arrived here in the Midwest, so I thought I would try a twist on this old favorite.  It’s not often that a new cocktail recipe hits it out of the park on the first try – but in this case it was a home run.  We both loved the beautiful color and sweet tart berry taste of this long cocktail.

Bellinis three glasses

For a Berry Bellini, add a puree of your favorite berries, raspberry liqueur or schnapps to your favorite prosecco or sparkling wine.  I used blackberries and raspberries, but blueberries or any of your favorite berries will work just as well.

Straining the puree to remove seeds is completely optional of course, but I always do.  Straining makes cleanup easier because it eliminates the possibility of a billion little seeds stuck to the insides of the glasses.

A prosecco is far and away the best bubble for a bellini, in my view.  It’s Italian (on theme! The original Bellini was invented in Venice!), inexpensive (always nice . . . ) and the flavor is very light (doesn’t get in the way of all the beautiful fruit . . .).

Hope you enjoy  - these lovely Berry Bellinis are sure to become a mainstay in my cocktail repertoire.

Cheers,
Michelle
