Probably the most famous of the Italian drinks, the Bellini is certainly the most elegant and refreshing. We make them by the pitcher full during the summer and they are always one of our most popular beverages to serve.
4 ripe white peaches, peeled and pitted
30 ounces chilled dry champagne
Place the peaches in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Peaches can be pureed up to 48 hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator or frozen up to 3 months for extra cold bellinis. Place the peach puree in a large pitcher and add the champagne. Stir gently to mix and serve in chilled champagne glasses.
