Peach Bellini’s may look like a Mimosa but the taste is quite different. Mimosas are made with orange juice and sparkling wine, while this Bellini is made with peach purée.
2 c. sliced B.C. peaches (keep six peach slices aside for garnish)
1/2 c. peach schnapps or peach vodka
1 bottle of your favourite sparkling white wine
For extra flavour and colour
1/4 c. strawberries
Mint leaves for garnish if desired
Put peaches, strawberries, and peach schnapps into a blender. Blend at high speed until smooth. If you use frozen fruit, you will get more of a slushy drink.
Divide this mixture into six glasses and add sparkling wine. Stir gently and add your peach and/or strawberry garnish.
This peach puree can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days, or in the freezer for two months.
