Summertime Wine Cocktails ~ Belinnis and Mimosas!

It's Summertime!  Time for cool refreshing cocktails.  We decided to take some of our favorites, and give them a wine twist.  Part 2 of 3

Peach Bellini

Inspired by the delicious peaches in season right now and fond memories of the original Bellini drink, we decided to give a Wine-y Bellini a try!  The Bellini is a popular sparkling wine cocktail and a perfect way to make your favorite wine a little peachy.

Have a champagne recipe but no champagne?  Use wine with club soda for the fizzy champagne feel. Like your Bellini's a little sweeter?  Use Blanc du Bois Semi-Sweet as your wine or Sprite as your fizz.
We think this recipe could be even better if we got out a blender and pureed some peach into it.  Or even poured the whole mix into the blender with ice to make a frozen Bellini.  mmmmm

While sipping on the Bellini, we decided that the same mix of wine and club soda over Oak Farms Dairy orange juice would make a really delicious mimosa....

Enjoy your sangria in whichever form you have it, and stay tuned for the next installment of Summer Wine Cocktails ~ Go Texan!

Part 2 of a 3 part Summer Wine Cocktails ~ Go Texan!

Being wine enthusiasts our beverage experience includes knowledge of wine, making of sangria and sipping of other tasty drinking. We knew we needed to keep the recipes simple without too many ingredients, for ease of prep.  A little web surfing got us some great inspiration for these tasty treats.

The Texas players here are
This summer, get out there, try some things, and Go Texan!  *cheers*
