How to make a Bellini cocktail

5
Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
The Bellini is a very simple cocktail involving peach and prosecco sparkling wine. Many people make it using champagne but it should be made with prosecco to make it authentic. Plus, you get a hell of a lot more bang for your buck with prosecco. Spend £10 on a bottle of prosecco and you get the quality you’d expect from a £30 bottle of champers.
What you'll need: 
5ml lemon juice
25ml peach juice (or puree)
10ml peach liqueur (optional)
Prosecco
Cocktail shaker
Spoon
Ice
Champagne glass
Lemon zest
Pencil/Straw
1: 
Add the lemon juice, peach juice, peach liqueur and prosecco to the cocktail shaker.
2: 
Fill the cocktail shaker with ice then STIR (do not shake!) until there is condensation on the outside of the shaker.
3: 
Pour the contents of the shaker into the champagne glass.
4: 
Take the lemon and cut a piece of zest around 10cm long, or as long as you can (it should be around 1cm thick).
5: 
Curl the zest around the pencil/straw to make it into a spiral. Hold for a couple of seconds and it should keep a spiral shape.
6: 
Remove the pencil/straw and add the zest to the drink, or balance on the side of the glass.
Conclusion: 
Bellissimo!
