To get you ready for the weekend, our latest Guest Bartender, Alaina from Live Creating Yourself, is serving up a tasting little treat that is bound to be a crowd pleaser!
Thank you so much, Jami, for including me in your guest bartending series! At first I wasn’t sure if I was the best candidate seeing as my boyfriend and I normally enjoy summer evenings on our back deck with a cold glass (bottle) of pinot grigio. But then I remembered the first time I sipped the most delicious cocktail I’ve had. in. my. life. So I thought I’d share that!
I present to you the Bellini. If you’re unfamiliar with the cocktail, it’s essentially two ingredients: pureed white peaches and Prosecco. Now I was kind of cheated, because I had my first Bellini at the place that invented the drink: Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy. I was 19-years-old and visiting with my Nana (see above photo), and our tour guide recommended Ernest Hemingway’s famous hangout solely for the purpose of ordering a Bellini. The chilled tasty cocktail is perfect for summer, especially if you’re hosting a shower of any kind, whether it’s for babies, brides, or just a girls’ luncheon.
I am using the official directions Harry’s offers on their website because it is still the most delicious Bellini I’ve had to date (and that’s including taking a stab at Ina Garten’s recipe, and I’m a firm believer Ina can do no wrong).
NEVER use yellow peaches or peach schnapps. Enjoy!
Thank you, Alaina, for Guest Bartending on imagine and sharing this yummy Peach Bellini recipe! You and your Nana are adorable; I bet she’s a real fun lady! The Bellini is simple, sweet and I’m not sure if I really want to wait until the weekend to try it! Tonight we are having guests over and it may just be the perfect reason to start my weekend early!

I LOOOVE Bellinis! When I was in Venice, I had one at Harry's, where they "began". I think it was like 20 euro for a tiny glass- but the experience and taste was worth it!
i absolutely love it! 🙂 yum!
Thanks so much for your comment and for following me! Of course I've got to follow someone who features a Bellini on their blog! Ahh you've got to try this, it's simply fabulous – really easy to drink, delicious, fresh, not too sweet… I could go on 🙂
What a fun series! I love these types of Bellinis, but I have seen some places serve something totally different under the same name.
First time to your blog through Leslie's post. I absolutely love the idea of "Guest Bartending!" Brilliant. I'd love to participate in this if you ever need another one! xxSAS
