What is a Peach Bellini?
This simple cocktail is named after a famous Italian painter named Giovani Bellini. Make it by blending frozen peaches and peach Schnapps and top it off with Prosecco.
- Bubbly peach Bellinis add an air of sophistication to brunches and holidays like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day (or any day ending in ‘Y”).
- Just three ingredients make it easy to create. Other cocktail recipes like Palomas and Aperol spritzes are also refreshing without being overly high in alcohol content.
- Bellinis are a nice breakfast cocktail to serve alongside a pitcher of mimosas.
Ingredients and Variations
Peaches – Since this drink is blended, any variety of peaches works! Fresh, frozen, canned, regular, or white peaches can be used.
PRO TIP: Drain canned peaches (freeze the juice into ice cubes for iced tea or other cocktails) or cut up fresh peaches and freeze them overnight.
Alcohol – Peach schanpps adds a bit of extra peachy flavor and a touch of sweetness. If your peaches aren’t very sweet, you can also add a pinch of sugar. This cocktail is topped off with prosecco or sparkling wine, use your favorite!
Variations – Bellinis can be made with any kind of frozen fruit! Try strawberries, raspberries, mangoes, and even watermelon or pineapple! Add a shot of Smirnoff’s Peach Vodka or Seagram’s Peach Twisted Gin for an extra kick!
How to Make a Peach Bellini
- Blend frozen peaches with peach schnapps until smooth.
- Divide between two glasses and top with prosecco.
- Serve Bellinis in champagne flutes to showcase their subtle sunset-colored hue.
Make it a Mocktail!
- Prosecco can be replaced with sparkling seltzer or even sparkling cider to make an alcohol-free, Bellini mocktail.
- For fewer calories, make a copycat version of Olive Garden’s Peach Iced Tea by switching the peach schnapps for peach syrup and the Prosecco for cold brew tea.
Tips for the Best Bellinis
- Bellinis are best when they’re served uber-chilled, so keep champagne flutes in the refrigerator until ready to use.
- Dip the rims of the champagne flutes in fine sugar for an extra treat.
- Make small garnish picks with fresh berries, edible flowers, sprigs of mint, or extra peach slices.
