White Peach Bellinis

Tips to stay thankfully nourished

As part of our Thankfully Nourished Christmas Banquet, let's start with a festive drink.

Ingredients for the syrup

  • 350ml white wine
  • 350ml water
  • 1 ½ tsp monk fruit concentrate
  • ½ vanilla bean (or ½ tsp pure vanilla extract)
  • peel from ½ lemon
  • 6 white peaches (halved with seed in)
  • Prosecco or soda water

How to make the syrup

  • Bring syrup to the boil and add halved peaches.
  • Turn the heat down to just simmering.
  • Cook for 20 minutes or until peaches are soft. Allow to cool in the syrup.
  • Peel the skin and discard with the seed. Blend and pass through a sieve if necessary.
  • This puree can be made 2-3 days in advance and stored in the fridge.

How to assemble the drink

  • To make a Bellini fill one third of a champagne flute with peach syrup and top up with ice cold Prosecco
  • For a non-alcoholic version replace white wine with strawberry & lemon syrup below and add soda water instead of Prosecco (the kids will love it!).
  • Strawberry & lemon syrup: Mix in a blender 100g strawberries (thawed frozen is fine) with zest and juice of 1 lemon until very well combined. Strain and top up with water to make 150ml.
