This decadent Peach Bellini Cocktail recipe made with fresh peach purée and bubbly Prosecco is perfect for any occasion, from a dinner party to a summertime get-together.
What is a peach Bellini made of?
A Peach Bellini is made of pureed, sweetened peaches and Prosecco. It’s that simple!
I adore peaches so it’s no surprise that I am loving this easy, delicious cocktail! The ingredients may be simple, but the combination is beyond delectable! Especially if you love sweet, ripe peaches. I love a cocktail, so if you do too, why not try Erren’s Strawberry Cocktail or The Perfect Mimosa, and add these to your repertoire?
I buy peaches a lot. Sometimes they are ripe and ready to eat, and sometimes they have to ripen in the fruit bowl and I end up with a bunch of overripe peaches-Bellini Cocktails to the rescue!
Why this recipe works:
- Cooking the peach purée intensifies the fresh peach flavor.
- The sweetness of the peach purée pairs perfectly with the Prosecco.
How to Make A Peach Bellini (a step by step guide):
Wash and peel the peaches, cut into wedges and place in a food processor.
Purée the peaches until completely broken down. Add the sugar and mix until combined.
Bring purée to boil over medium-high heat and cook (stirring occasionally), until it reduces to measure about a cup (approximately 236ml).
The purée can be made two or three days in advance when stored in the fridge. Once ready to use, if it has become quite thick, just mix it with a little water.
Pour the peach purée into a champagne flute.
You will want to fill it about a third of the way.
Gently pour ice-cold Prosecco to fill the glass.
Only stir when ready to drink.
Optionally, you can finish it off by adding some peach wedges to the glass.
Serve and enjoy!
Tips For The Perfect Peach Bellini Cocktail :
- If you don’t have Prosecco, Champagne, or Sparkling wine can be used too.
- Prosecco often costs less than Champagne, so making a true Bellini also saves you some money too!
- Be sure to pour and stir gently so as not to lose the fizz.
- Use store-bought peach juice or nectar in place of the peach purée in a pinch.
- Storing your purée: The peach purée should be good in the refrigerator for a good 2-3 days.
- To make the purée last longer, add a splash of lemon juice to act as a preservative. This will make it last for up to a week in an airtight container.
- Want an alcohol-free version? Use sparkling water with a splash of lemon juice or your favorite flavored variety.
- Add an extra bit of color and sweetness with a splash of grenadine.
- Make a frozen Bellini: Freeze the purée in an ice cube tray, and then add to a blender with a little peach juice to blend and use it in place of the peach purée in the recipe.
