When I was pregnant, I fantasized about having a fizzy Bellini around Christmas. Since my original due date was December 22nd, I was really hoping for a Christmas Bellini, it was all I wanted! Things have a funny way of working out, don’t they? Turns out I could have started drinking Bellini’s in mid-November, but of course, I didn’t get around to making one until Christmas anyways.
Extra Boozy Bellini’s
By Baked Northwest
Makes 6-8 Drinks
- One (1 lb.) bag of frozen peaches
- 1/2 cup triple sec or other orange liqueur
- 1/4 cup vodka
- 2 tbsp. peach jam or preserves
- juice from 1 lemon (about 2 tbsp.)
- Champagne, Prosecco, or any other Sparkling Wine for serving
Add the peaches, triple sec, vodka, peach jam, and lemon juice to a blender. Blend on high until smooth. You can add extra booze (or water) to the mixture if it’s too thick, the mixture should be a smooth, but slightly thick consistency. The goal is to have a nice boozy smoothie!
Add the mixture to a pitcher and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. When ready, pour mixture into champagne flutes to fill about halfway. Top with Prosecco to serve.
