Bellini Sorbetto..A Drink for Dessert!

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.



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!
