A balsamic peach bellini is a refreshing and fruity twist on the classic bellini cocktail. It's the perfect summer drink, combining the sweetness of ripe peaches with the tangy flavor of balsamic vinegar. Here's how to make this delicious cocktail:
2 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup Spark Balsamic Vinegar
2 tbsp honey
1 bottle prosecco or champagne
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish
In a blender, puree the sliced peaches until smooth.
In a small saucepan, heat the balsamic vinegar and honey over medium heat, stirring constantly until the honey is dissolved and the mixture has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and let cool.
To assemble the bellini, add a spoonful of the peach puree to the bottom of each champagne flute. Top with a small amount of the balsamic mixture.
Fill the glass with prosecco or champagne and stir gently.
Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
The sweetness of the peaches pairs perfectly with the tanginess of the balsamic vinegar, creating a unique and complex flavor profile. You can adjust the amount of balsamic vinegar and honey to suit your taste. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, add more honey. For a more tart drink, add more balsamic vinegar. With just a few simple ingredients and a little bit of blending, you can create a drink that is both refreshing and unique. Give it a try!
