Why not start brunch off the right way with a Semifreddo Bellini. What’s better than blended fruit and champagne to start off the day. I am more partial to bellini’s than mimosa’s. I don’t know why, just personal preference I guess. They’re so simple to make, it’s a good thing I don’t keep the ingredients around the house all the time…. Otherwise I would have one everyday, which probably wouldn’t be the best thing. After making these, I promise you will look forward to brunch every weekend!
- 1 cup peeled, chopped peaches, frozen until hardened (or any fruit you would like. Peaches are the best though.)
- 1/4 cup peach schnapps
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chilled Champagne or sparkling white wine
- 2 tablespoons superfine sugar (I make mine without sugar. Just depends on how sweet you want the drink to be.)
- 1 cup small ice cubes
- Peach slices, for garnish
Directions serves 2
Blend the peaches and peach schnapps together. Add the champagne, sugar (if needed) and ice to the blender until smooth. Divide the mixture between glasses and top each glass off with champagne. Garnish the glass with a peach and serve.
Random Fact… Semifreddo means “half cold” in Italian.
