Makes 6 to 8 drinks
You really don’t need a recipe for this, but the Ina Garten recipe I referenced called for two peaches for 1 bottle of prosecco. Peaches vary in size and sweetness, so quantity of peaches will vary based on your taste preferences. I found for one bottle of prosecco, four peaches was about right. Sugar is optional, too — if your peaches are super ripe and sweet, you might not need any sugar.
You also can make a pitcher of bellinis as opposed to mixing drinks one at a time: pour the peach juice into a carafe, then slowly pour the prosecco overtop. Give it a gentle stir. Store in fridge until ready to serve.
Also, if you have a juicer or a Vitamix, you probably can bypass the sieving step.
- 2 to 4 peaches (see notes above)
- sugar (optional)
- 1 tablespoon lime juice or lemon
- 1 bottle of prosecco
- Place the peaches, sugar, and lemon or lime juice in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth. Press the mixture through a sieve.
- Place 2 tablespoons (or more or less — do it to taste) of the peach purée into each glass and fill with cold prosecco. Serve immediately. (See notes above re mixing a pitcher.)
