Ginny's Boozy Bellini
2 oz Ginny’s Gin
1 oz Fresh Peach Puree*
Chilled Champagne, Prosecco, Cava or Sparkling Wine to top
Mix it up
*To make the peach puree enough for 6 Bellinis
4 peaches (white, pitted and peeled)
3 ice cubes
1 teaspoon or to taste of fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon or to taste of simple syrup
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Can be strained to make it more like juice. Keep in the fridge for up to a week in a well-sealed container, but better used immediately ; )
To make the cocktail
Shake gin & peach puree with ice, pour into a Gabriel-Glas stemless glass & top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a peach slice. Your Bellini will only be as good as your peaches, so chose those that are perfectly ripe.
This classic, classy cocktail, one of Italy’s most famous, the Bellini, has been kicked up a notch with the addition of Ginny’s Gin. Invented by Giuseppe Cipriani, owner of Harry’s Bar in Venice, the Bellini has been a seasonal specialty there since 1948 and a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles. With fresh, fragrant seasonal peaches, you definitely need this one in your cocktail repertoire this summer.
