This Peach Bellini is an easy and refreshing cocktail made with fresh peach puree, a little honey for sweetness, and Prosecco. It’s a perfectly refreshing cocktail to serve for brunch, baby showers, or just on a hot summer day. You can make peach puree a day ahead and store it in the refrigerator until ready to use.

BELLINI

What is Peach Bellini? Delicious, is what it is. 

But more specifically, Peach Bellini is a simple cocktail that’s made with peach puree and Prosecco. It’s a great, refreshing cocktail that truly only has two ingredients in it. I do add a little honey to the peach puree for a little more sweetness but that is an optional ingredient. 

Bellini is a cocktail that originated in Venice, Italy. Originally, this cocktail was made with white peaches to give the drink a little pinkish hue. You can use either white peaches or yellow peaches, depending on availability. 

This cocktail is perfect for brunches, baby showers, Mother’s Day, outdoor events, or just when you want to relax on a warm summer day. It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and most of that time is making the peach puree.

You can easily save yourself some time by making peach puree the day before or a few hours before. I don’t recommend preparing peach puree any earlier than 1 day because fresh peach puree won’t last much longer in the fridge.

Peach Puree

HOW TO MAKE PEACH PUREE

Make sure to select ripe peaches. If peaches are not ripe, it won’t blend as smooth and taste more sour than sweet. 

Peel the skin off the peaches before blending. Ripe peaches are very easy to peel the skin off with your hands but you can also use a vegetable peeler. 

Place peeled peaches in the blender and add honey. Blend until completely smooth. 

If not using right away, pour peach puree into a  food storage container with an air-tight lid and refrigerate. 

Can I use frozen peaches?

Yes, you can use frozen peaches. Choose the peaches that are skinless and make sure to thaw peaches in the refrigerator before blending. 

Making Peach Bellini

HOW TO MAKE BELLINI

First step to making Bellini is to make the peach puree. 

Divide puree among champagne flutes, adding about 1 1/2 oz of puree per flute.

Fill the flute with Prosecco about half way and gently stir to mix puree and Prosecco. Fill the flute with Prosecco the rest of the way.

Note: 16 oz of peaches will make about 12-13 oz of peach puree. That should be enough for 8-10 cocktails, depending on the size of champagne flute.
