A Bellini cocktail recipe made with peach nectar, peach schnapps, and a dry sparkling wine. Serve this cocktail recipe as part of a special brunch menu or for a wedding or baby shower luncheon.
It is a quick and easy way to dress up a brunch or luncheon and make it a bit more memorable.
Traditionally an Italian or Spanish sparkling wine like Prosecco or Cava Brut is used for this cocktail, as they are not as sweet when combined with the peach nectar. A French champagne tends to be a bit sweeter and thus produces a sweeter drink.
For a non-alcoholic version, try substituting gingerale in place of the sparkling wine and omitting the peach schnapps.
