California Peach Bellini

Sharon Palmer

I first had a Bellini in the famed place it originated, in Venice, Italy at Harry’s Bar. It is made with Prosecco (sparkling Italian white wine) and pureed white peaches. I really fell hard for Italian Prosecco, and since I became acquainted with it, I always have some on hand, especially for light cocktails.

Enjoying Prosecco with Peter in Venice a decade ago.

I recently got a little inspiration from my friends at Pacific Coast Producers to make a light, no-added sugar, California-themed Bellini made with unsweetened canned peaches from California. It’s a virtual snap to put this together made with the goodness of peaches, which are just so good! You can also make this recipe completely Californian by swapping out the Prosecco for a nice, crisp California sparkling white wine.
