Drink, Bellini

 DDrink
Yay!  We have made it to the end of another week. It’s Fiesta Friday time!  What better way to wind down the week than with a little get together with friends; have a few drinks, good food and a few laughs …and maybe more drinks.  😉
One of the places we like to go is Johnny Carino’s.  They have a great happy hour menu for drinks and appetizers.  I usually order my favorite drink, a Bellini.  I decided I like these so much that I wanted to make them at home.  Although I did not get Johnny’s  recipe,  I was able to find out what is in one.
Johnny Carino’s Bellini – Frozen peach nectar, white wine, champagne and rum swirled with Italian Sangria.

Sounds yummy, right? Right!  I remembered I had frozen peaches and could easily use them to whip up some daiquiri mix and add a little twist to it with sangria and Voilà! Here is Johnny Carino’s Bellini my way.  Please do try some.  It looks like it might be a hot summer ahead!

Peach Bellini with a Swirl of Sangria

  • Servings: 1-2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 cup crushed ice – more if necessary
  • 1 cup Prosecco – chilled
  • 2 ounces of sangria

Directions:

  2. This drink is so pretty. Hot summer or not, we must honour the season with its share of refreshing, fruity mixed drinks. I presume I could use any fresh fruit in season instead of the peaches.
