'Fruit' theme huh? It's a hot hot day and all I can think of are cold cold Bellinis. I promise it has lot of fresh peaches in it...honest..
PP - none ...just cropped.
Just so you know.....the Bellini was created 1943 at Harry's Bar in Venice. Inspired by the pink glow Giuseppi Cipriani admired in one of 15th-century Venetian painter Giovanni Bellini's paintings, the purist version is made with fresh pureed white peaches with a bit of raspberry puree to give the drink the requisite pink colour. Should you wish to drink one today, you'll need:
2/3 cup white peach puree (use yellow peaches if white not available). For the puree -peel fresh peaches, cut up in pieces and blend in a food processor.)
1 teaspoon raspberry puree.
1 bottle chilled Champagne or Italian sparkling wine (the original was/is made with Prosecco)
Place 1 1/2 tablespoons puree In the bottom of each (chilled) flute and add 2 - 3 drops of the raspberry puree. Add wine and serve. Cin Cin!
