Welcome to DAY 3 of Cocktail week! We’re going to keep this post short and to the point because 1) yesterday’s Simple Syrup post was a BEAST and 2) I’M LAUNCHING MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL TODAY! Well, I guess it’s kind of a re-launch? Whatever it is, it’s the beginning of longer-format, WEEKLY videos that I will be posting on my Youtube channel every single Wednesday.

For this weeks video, I’m showing you how to make this Bellini recipe THREE different ways: classic, frozen, and as a popsicle. All super simple and so ridiculously perfect for summer! I’m really excited to share this video with you! If you aren’t already, it would mean so much to me if you subscribed to my youtube channel!

But without further ado, here’s the video!

What is a Bellini?

A Bellini is simply a peach version of a mimosa. That’s it. Super simple, nothing fancy, still ridiculously tasty!

What’s in a Bellini you might ask?: like a mimosa, a bellini has juice (peach juice to be exact) and champagne. While it’s not totally needed, you can also add in a little bit of simple syrup if you think that the cocktail could be a little bit sweeter.

How to Make a Bellini:

Many recipes will call for you to first make the peach nectar. At brunch, I never want to fool with that so I just use peach nectar from the can. I almost always see it at my local stores in the Latin American section of the store.

If you DO want to make your own peach nectar, simple blend up a few pitted peaches and then run that through a mesh sieve to collect the juice (and get rid of the fruity bits that you might not want in your drink).

To actually make the Bellini, simply mix together one part peach nectar to one part sparkling wine and add in a splash (start with about 1/2 of a teaspoon) of simple syrup. I usually taste mine first to decide if it needs any extra sweetness and then go from there.

THAT’S IT! Hence why this is such a popular brunch cocktail.

How to make a frozen peach Bellini:

To make the frozen Bellini version, we’re going to combine frozen peaches and champagne in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Serve and enjoy! As with the original Bellini, you can add in a bit of simple syrup if you want the cocktail to be sweet.

bellini popsicle

How to make a Bellini popsicle:

To make this cocktail into a popsicle, we’re essentially just going to make the recipe as usual and then dump it into a popsicles mold. We’re going for classic and EASY here, okay?

Alternatively, you could also make the frozen version and then pour that into the molds. This is a great way to store any leftovers that you might have (and you’ll be so thankful later when you remember that they’re in the freezer!).
