Frozen Sunset Bellini

Updated: Jul 24

Refreshing and delicious: A new twist on the traditional Bellini.

What is Frozen Sunset Bellini? It is my ultimate creation: Prosecco, peach purée, peach juice, grenadine, and topped with a single raspberry. It is so refreshing, with sweet notes from the grenadine and peaches, and the crispiness from the Prosecco. A true winner. Why is it called "Sunset Bellini"? Because it reminded me of the bright sunsets I enjoyed while visiting Italy.


Since having my first glass of Bellini at a restaurant right next Ponte Rialto in Venice, Italy, I always wanted to learn how to make it. Over a decade later I decided to give it a try and the results were cause for celebration. However... I wanted to push the envelope farther. Why not a frozen cocktail with a modern twist? Cue the grenadine, the peach juice, and raspberry.


Now, to make this you will need to either make peach purée or get some from the store. I could not find any at the store so I decided to make my own. Although I had no experience making peach purée, my friend Amy did. So I went to her website Little Healthy Foodies and used her recipe and it was perfect for what I needed.


If you don't want to spend the time making peach purée from scratch, you could just get a 10 oz. package of frozen peaches and blend them with some peach juice. You will get a similar result in no time.


If you do not drink alcohol but still enjoy non-alcoholic cocktails, just substitute the Prosecco/Spumante for non-alcoholic Sparkling Cider!


Now...let's get back to our cocktail!
