- 1/3 cup (79 ml) chilled orange juice (freshly squeezed is best)
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) triple sec
The Classic Bellini
Everyone has heard of the classic Bellini! It’s traditionally made with peaches and champagne mixed together for an elegant fruity fizz. This recipe can be done using fresh, really ripe peaches or you can use tinned ones, they’re best made up just before serving.
- 1 bottle of chilled champagne
- 2 fresh peaches (or 1 tin of peaches)
Simply liquidise your peaches (after removing the stones!) and add the purée to a glass and top up with your favourite champage.
As a little added extra, if it’s hot and you fancy something ice cold, you can mix both these recipes and freeze them in ice lolly moulds to make a grown up frozen treat!
