Recipe: Madcap Bellini
This entry was posted on December 31, 2009.
While the traditional Bellini utilizes Prosecco, a sweeter Italian version of the white wine bubbly variety, and peach puree, we liked the idea of pairing the more crisp Spanish take on bubbly, Cava, with a sweeter syrup. This lovely cocktail is an arguably perfect accoutrement to your New Year's Eve festivities this evening.
- 1/2 oz. - 1 oz. of Monin White Peach Syrup - to taste
- 8 oz. Cava sparkling wine - to taste
Pour the peach syrup into a flute to taste -- it varied here between 1/2 oz. to 1 oz., depending on the level of sweetness people preferred -- then top with Cava. Toast, sip, celebrate!
