Whenever I’m in the mood for a classic cocktail that’s both refreshing and luxurious, I reach for my favorite. Today, I’m sharing that favorite with you in this Peach Bellini Recipe.

Originated at the famous Harry’s Bar in Venice, this cocktail has made its mark all over the world, and today, I’m thrilled to bring this Peach Bellini Recipe right to your kitchen!

With its velvety peach purée and bubbly prosecco, this drink feels like a celebration with every sip. 

And the good news? Making your own peach bellini is a breeze! For me, the key to this classic drink is fresh ingredients!

White peaches can be a bit tough to find. Definitely look out for them, but just know that yellow peaches are yummy, too.

The key to a great bellini is that the peaches are sweet and ripe when you’re making them into cocktails. I’ve got a few more helpful tips like these down below!

I like to ripen hard peaches on the windowsill. Unripe peaches are less likely to get bruised since they’re harder. 

The end result of this peach bellini recipe is a delicious drink with a fresh puree of peaches that you won’t soon forget. Let’s get into it!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

CAN I USE FROZEN PEACHES?

Yes, you can, but fresh peaches give the best flavor and consistency.

When you’re making an authentic bellini, you want fresh ingredients.

It might be tempting to use frozen, but trust me on this. The experience will be so much better if you go fresh!

CAN I MAKE THIS A FROZEN BELLINI?

Absolutely! That actually sounds like a great idea right now, haha! Just blend in some ice for a slushy delight.

WHAT KIND OF WINE IS THE BEST TO USE?

Prosecco is traditionally used, but any sparkling wine or Italian white wine will do.

I know I tend to have preferences, but this is really about your taste buds, not mine!

CAN THIS BE MADE AHEAD?

It’s best to make the puree just before serving to maintain the fresh peach color and taste.

This drink doesn’t really work as well in a make-ahead situation.

ANY ADDITIONS?

While it won’t quite be that classic peach bellini, these ideas sure do sound yummy!

  • Strawberry slices for a fruity twist
  • Splash of lemon juice for a zesty kick
  • A hint of orange juice for added sweetness
  • A few mint leaves for an aromatic touch
  • Swirl of cherry juice for color and tang
  • Lime zest for a zingy finish
  • Pomegranate seeds for a crunchy surprise
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon for a warm touch
  • Drop of peach liqueur for deeper flavor
  • Raspberry syrup for added sweetness

ANY SUBSTITUTIONS?

Why not? Go for it! Try out these subs and let me know what you think.

  • Swap peach schnapps with peach liqueur or omit entirely for a milder taste
  • Use champagne in place of prosecco for a classic mimosa twist
  • Substitute simple syrup with honey for natural sweetness
  • Use frozen white peaches instead of fresh peaches for a frozen peach bellini
  • If out of prosecco, a sparkling rosé can do the trick
  • Sparkling white grape juice can be a non-alcoholic substitute for prosecco

HOW TO STORE:

Refrigerator: If you have any leftover peach puree (without the prosecco), you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Freezer: While I wouldn’t recommend storing the finished cocktail, you can freeze peach puree in ice cube trays and use them later for instant bellinis!

DANA’S TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Use a vegetable peeler for easy peeling of peaches.
  • If peaches aren’t in season, frozen peaches work, but remember, fresh is always best!
  • Serve in a chilled champagne flute to keep your bellini cool longer.
  • Always add prosecco slowly to avoid overflowing.
  • Taste and adjust! If you like it sweeter, don’t hesitate to add a touch more simple syrup.
  • Always serve immediately for the best fresh taste and bubbly experience!
