The best sorts of cocktails are the ones that look fancy, taste amazing and don’t require a ton of ingredients to make. This strawberry bellini recipe is one of the simplest drinks you can make so no one should be intimidated to try this one.
What is a bellini?
A classic Italian bellini is made with Prosecco and peach nectar. However there are so many varieties of bellini recipes for all types of flavors. The peach flavored bellini will always be a classic but this strawberry one is also one of my favorites. Strawberries and Prosecco go exceptionally well together and also make this cocktail look very presentable.
How to make this strawberry bellini:
You can whip up a batch of these strawberry bellinis in under five minutes. First, hull the strawberries and then pass them through a juicer to get fresh strawberry juice.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can blend the strawberries and then pass them through a fine mesh sieve. This will create more of a purée/ slightly thicker drink, but will still taste amazing.
Fill each glass with ⅓ strawberry juice and ⅔ Prosecco. Gently stir, then serve.
Do you have to use Prosecco for this strawberry bellini?
No. Champagne or even sparkling wine will also work just as well for this strawberry bellini recipe. As long as you use an alcohol that is bubbly it will still taste great!
You don’t even have to use the most fancy alcohol either. Since you are mixing these into cocktails, save the more expensive alcohol for when you are just serving it on its own.
If you would like to substitute out the alcohol altogether, you could definitely use a nonalcoholic sparkling wine or sparkling juice instead - just don’t choose one with a strong flavor that will overpower the strawberries.
