Christmas Cocktail Making *


When it comes to Christmas I like to indulge in a posh cocktail or two! A personal, recent, favourite of ours is the Peach Bellini after having a great one in Lyon back in November. This famous cocktail was invented at Harry’s Bar, Venice, in 1934, and I can see why it’s so popular still now-a-days!

If you’re a little more indecisive than we are then the Cocktail Wheel from House of Fraser will help you pick! I love this idea as it means you can serve the right cocktails in the right glasses based on what you have int he cupboard. I’m a stickler for using the right glass. I think we own more glasses in our flat than anything else!

 Here’s the recipe we used for making our bellini’s…

Ingredients
2 ripe peaches, peeled, halved and stone removed
chilled champagne
2 chilled champagne glasses

Method
Place the peaches in a small blender and purée until totally smooth. This can be done well in advance and kept in the fridge.

Spoon half into the chilled champagne glasses and slowly top up with champagne, stirring as you pour.
You should ideally have one third peach purée to two-thirds champagne.

Seriously how easy is that to make! It’s great as you can make a lot of it in bulk beforehand and then have it ready to go for when you want to drink it. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, you can use Prosecco too, it works just as well, and is a little nicer on your bank account, especially if you’re entertaining a large group!
