Friday Cocktail Hour. White Peach Bellini.

Friday, January 30th 2015

Mood:  The last, long warm days of January have us dreaming of Mediterranean destinations and summer scents, the perfume of a white peach, the refreshment of chilled wine. Afternoons that begin when the sun is high in the sky and end long after it has set…

Cocktail: White Peach Bellini

15mm / 1 ounce white peach puree

Prosecco

(plus fresh peach slices to garnish)

To make peach puree, score the base of peaches and blanch in boiling water for one minute or until soft. Plunge peaches into iced water, peel, then puree. Layer puree in a champagne flute and top with chilled, dry Prosecco. Garnish with a peach sliver.
