It’s New Year’s Eve and while some of us will be popping bottles of expensive champagne to celebrate, the rest of us will be taking a much more affordable approach. Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine and, in my opinion, is less dry and more delicious than your usual champagne anyway. Mix it with a little pureed fruit or, for the lazier of us, peach nectar from a can, and you’ve got yourself what’s called a “bellini”.
Simple, delicious, bubbly. Just like New Year’s Eve should be.
Making bellinis is super easy. Just one part fruit juice or nectar to two parts prosecco.
- 2 oz fruit juice or nectar
- 4 oz Prosecco (the sommelier at our local grocer recommended La Marca brand)
Pour 2 oz fruit juice into champagne flute.
Add prosecco and let the bubbles mix it for you.
Drink, enjoy, pour another, drink more.
Happy New Year!
