The Bellini (Adapted from Harry's Bar) [Rhonda]
It should be on everyone's bucket list: traveling to Venice, stopping in for a Bellini at the famous Harry's Bar, an iconic fixture slightly west of the Piazza San Marco.
This is the easy version, until that magical trip happens for you.
Degree of difficulty: easy
Time: 5 minutes
2 ounces chilled peach puree, made from 1 peach
3 ounces chilled prosecco
Pinch of sugar, if desired
To make the peach puree, blend chunks of unpeeled peaches in a food processor, strain through a fine sieve. Add a pinch of sugar if desired.
Put the peach puree in the bottom of a champagne flute, pour in the prosecco and serve immediately without stirring. (I stirred.)
Suggested soundtrack: "Un bel di vedromo" from Puccini's "Madama Butterfly"
