It is PEACH season and the perfect time for this peachy cocktail!  Yesterday was my 3 year wedding anniversary with my darling husband and Peaches are one of his most favorite things!  To celebrate the event, I blended up a batch of Vanilla Peach Bellini’s before we went out for a romantic dinner!  It was sort of our own little peachy cocktail hour after work!  Now this is not the original recipe for a Peach Bellini, but my own little recipe and interpretation of the drink.
Next week I will be making these again, but with some Fresh peaches from my Mom’s tree which I am sure will make them even more delicioso!  If you like fruity blended cocktails, you gotta give this one a try!  It would be really pretty and yummy to finish it off with a float of raspberry liquor, or a few fresh raspberries, but  I did not have any yesterday so just garnished with a few grapes which worked well too!  I hope you like this as much as we did!  Here’s to love, gorgeous late summer nights, and PEACHES!!!


VANILLA PEACH BELLINI (makes 2-3 servings)

  • 1 1/2 Cup Frozen Peaches
  • 2 Oz Peach Schnapps
  • 2 Oz Vodka
  • 1/2 cup Champagne or Prosecco (Italian Sparkling Wine)
  • 3/4 cup Peach Nectar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Peach Sorbet (Haagen Dazs is delicious haha)  This is optional.  Use if you like your bellini a little sweeter.
  • 6-8 big ice cubes

First step is to put the ice and frozen peaches in your blender.

Next Step is simply to pour all of rest of the liquid ingredients into the blender on top of the ice and add the Sorbet if you are using it and then blend till completely smooth.  You could substitute club soda or Sprite for the alcohol to make a virgin bellini for the kiddos.

Now…these are one fantastic tasting cocktail so enjoy them why you can and while peaches are in season to get the best flavor.  And I guarantee they will be enjoyed.  In fact….

They will be Going

GOING

GONE BABY GONE

HAPPY BELLINING and Happy Anniversary to my Handsome Husband!  I love you darling!
