Infuse your bubbly with fruit with a frozen Bellini.

How to Make a Frozen Bellini With Peach Puree & No Peaches

by Chance E. Gartneer

The frozen Bellini, the mimosa's fancier and chillier cousin, can accompany a long brunch just as well as it can buoy a bridal celebration. Based on a simple mixture of peach, bubbly and booze, the fruitful flavors play off sparkling wine's effervescence to create a light and tasty chilled beverage. If you only have peach puree and no peaches, you get to forgo the making of the puree and dive right into creating the cocktail.

1 Pour 1 part peach schnapps and 3 parts sparkling wine into the blender.

2 Add 1/2 cup of peach puree and 2 cups of ice for each part of peach schnapps used.

3 Blend at a slow speed until the ice is broken down and the contents are smooth.

4 Pour the blender's contents into champagne flutes or other glassware, leaving about an inch from the rim. Top with a dash of sparkling wine.

Items you will need

  • Blender
  • Ice
  • Peach schnapps
  • Peach puree
  • Sparkling wine
  • Glassware

Tips

  • Prepackaged frozen peach puree keeps longer than fresh puree and can be easily stored in the freezer until the next cocktail party.
  • Add a twist of lemon for more fruitiness or a cherry for show.
  • You can substitute rum for the peach schnapps, or you can just leave out the schnapps and add more sparkling wine for a less potent cocktail.

Warning

  • Always drink responsibly, and have a designated driver if your party takes you on the road.
