The Bellini seems to be an underrated brunch cocktail. Though it's often overshadowed by the incredibly basic Mimosa and the savory Bloody Mary, the Bellini brings it's own special quirkiness to the table. The Bellini is kind of like the sweeter sibling of the mimosa; fruit purées and nectars mixed with bubbly champagne or prosecco.
In this drink, we're making our own raspberry purée and mixing it with some thick and juicy peach nectar. Perfect for a summer brunch!
