Fresh Peach Bellini





Have you ever had an Italian "Bellini" Cocktail?
It's an incredible drink made with fresh summer peaches and mixed with prosecco. (I made a virgin version too that I mix with seltzer for the kids).


The first time I was introduced to a beautiful Bellini cocktail was many years ago at the exquisite Bellini Bar inside of the The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas. It was a memorable cocktail and memorable experience!


Yet, I had totally forgotten about Bellinis until I saw a post the other day on Roz's blog, La Bella Vita !

Roz authors an incredible blog that focuses on classic Italian cuisine. Her exquisite photos and wonderful recipes are always worth the visit! A recent post featured a classic Italian Bellini recipe with beautiful photos and information about the history and origin of Bellinis from Venice, Italy.

Since it's peach season in New Jersey and the farmer's markets are flourishing with big luscious looking peaches, I decided to make a batch of Bellinis for a dinner the other night when we ate on the deck with my older son's family. I made alcoholic Bellinis for the four adults and virgin Bellinis for the grandkids.


Everyone was thrilled with the flavor from the local fresh peaches. It was a hot humid evening and we totally enjoyed our beautiful looking and absolutely delicious Italian drink!

Want the easy recipe?
I going to send you over to Roz's blog for the classic Italian recipe. Use this link:  La Bella Vita 

We enjoyed our Bellinis and I'm sure you will too. Thanks so much Roz !

  2. I do like these. I have been known to make fake bellinis with peach schnapps and sparkling wine.

    1. We seem to have had a very prolific peach season this year and we have been getting lots of peaches from a near-by farm.

  8. Hi Judee,

    I'm sooooo glad that you enjoyed your homemade Bellini's. I liked how you made them for the kids without the prosecco. I bet that made them feel special! I'd love to try New Jersey peaches someday! Thanks for the shout out! You're so kind!
