Drinks »Bellini with Fresh Peaches

fresh peach belliniI've recommended this elegant Venetian cocktail before, but since I had real live fresh peaches we picked from the orchard, I decided to make them the classic way by pureeing the peaches with lemon juice and sugar and topping with sparkling prosecco.

Be warned: pour the prosecco slowly as the drink will foam up quickly. This foam is much prettier in the glass than on your floor, the beverage is so pretty in fact, creator Giuseppe Cipriani named it after the sunset paintings by Giovanni Bellini. A spot of cherry juice can add even more sunset drama. This is a fabulous summer cocktail and a great way to use your peaches from Lewin Farms (see below).
