A slushy peach bellini blended with frozen peaches and peach liqueur then topped with sweet raspberry liqueur and a little tart red wine. It’s the perfect summertime adult slush!
Imagine you are sitting on your back deck or around the pool with your favorite people, your having a barbecue and watching your kids play in the yard. The sun is shining and it feels so nice on your skin. The only thing you need now is a delicious slushy cocktail! We have just the ticket!
Its our version of the Milestones peach 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 peach 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 or peach vodka and some ice, then topped with a splash of our homemade raspberry liqueur and a little red wine. Its a gorgeous looking cocktail and tastes as good as it looks. A little sweet and a little tart. Its the perfect balance.
Did you know that the original Bellini was created in Venice, Italy in the 1930’s and consisted 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 and sugar into pot, heat it up till the sugar dissolves, stir it well and then let it cool. Then add some vodka. 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. You could also use a store bought raspberry liqueur.
Its too bad I still have to work today. These peach bellinis 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 our slushy peach vodka drinks in the bushes lol.
Hope you all have a fantastic Fathers Day weekend!
