We’ve got another slushy cocktail for you! Its our version of the Milestones Bellini. For those of you who don’t know, Milestones is a restaurant chain here in Canada and they have made this type of slushy Bellini famous in these parts. Our’s definitely tastes similar, but can I just say that I think ours is better?
We make ours with real frozen peaches blended up with sweet peach liqueur and some ice, our homemade raspberry liqueur and topped off with a splash of red wine. Its a gorgeous looking cocktail and tastes as good as it looks.
Imagine sitting on the deck or by the pool chatting with the girls and sipping on these…
Did you know that the original Bellini was created in Venice, Italy in the 1930’s and consists of white peach puree and Prosecco sparkling wine. There. Now you do. That was your history lesson for the day.
Now, if you don’t have any homemade raspberry liqueur, go make some! Seriously, right now. It’s amazing! Especially in this cocktail.
But if you haven’t yet and you don’t want to wait 2 months for the raspberry liqueur to be ready, just throw some frozen raspberries, sugar and vodka into pot, heat it up till the sugar dissolves, stir it well and then let it cool. I think that will work well although I haven’t tried it yet. I would say 2 cups of vodka, 2 cups of raspberries and 1/2 cup of sugar.
Its too bad I still have to work today. These look so good, I could have one for breakfast! I think maybe I will tomorrow… Debbie and I often have mimosas for breakfast while were camping, but we might have to break from tradition this weekend and mix up one of these. Problem is that EVERYONE is going to want one. We will have to go drink them in the bushes lol.
Hope you all have a fantastic Fathers Day weekend!
