Pin It What could be better than a fresh peach and Prosecco bellini on a warm summer day, particularly now that the fresh peaches are coming in ? Why a cold refreshing bellini sorbetto of course! Made with the freshest ripe peaches, this tantalizing concoction of prosecco and peach is sure to tickle your tastebuds. I bet they don't have this at Harry's Bar!
This is a light and refreshing dessert that would go well after the Apricot Lamb Tagine. Make sure you serve it with Amaretti Cookies for a great combination.
SERVES 4 -6
1 cup water
1 1/4 lbs ripe peaches peeled, pitted and sliced (or 16 oz. frozen peaches)
1 lemon, juice of
1/2 cup prosecco or asti spumante sparkling wine*
Stir sugar into water in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir until sugar dissolves.
Bring to a slow boil and boil for 3 minutes. Cool.
Puree peaches in a blender; add cooled syrup and lemon juice.
Stir in wine.
Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.
Serve in pretty glass bowls or champagne flutes.
*May also serve a small scoop in a tall glass and add sparkling wine for a refreshing after dinner dessert drink.
*You may substitute Champagne if you have some leftover from the night before. In that case, you would have a Peach Champagne Sorbet!
