It’s that time of year when cheer comes by the glass and no one passes up the chance to try the lovely and spirited libations that are creatively crafted at parties. Holiday beverages spark emotion, happiness and bring on great tidings.
A holiday tradition in my home is to spend one night each weekend at home and attend our own family party. Our parties are celebrated with freshly curated beverages and festive eats. After recently experiencing some of the most delicious Peach Bellini’s while dining out. I set out to craft my own rendition with a little built-in holiday spirit and so was born the Snow Kissed Strawberry Bellini. Lavishly live holiday libation out loud and test out my snow kissed Strawberry Bellini.
My Favorite Tip
Our favorite tips to extend to all of you that saves money and lets you stay less stressed: Staying in on a Friday night during the holidays rather than heading out to the bar, saves me lots of money by the season’s end and this money can be placed into my future retirement savings.
Snow Kissed Strawberry Bellini
The snow-kissed effect comes from the Prosecco bubbling up and creating a lovely white snowy topping, as good to look at as it is to taste! Cheers.
1 Bottle of Prosecco (brand of your preference is fine)
Strawberries- 16 oz container – Pureed – (leave 4 for garnish)
17 Oz Bottle of Sparkling Ice Strawberry Lemonade
2 C Crushed Ice
2 Tbsp Lemon
3 Tbsp Sugar
Clean the strawberries, and remove tops ( except reserve 4 of the best with the hull still on as you will use this to garnish).
Puree cleaned strawberries, sugar, and lemon. Remove.
Crush ice until smooth consistency. Remove.
Now, in the blender (Ninja) add in 4 oz each: Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade Ice, ice puree, Prosecco, and berries, & pulse blend for 15 seconds.
In bottom of tall glass (wine or champagne) a 1 oz Prosecco, bellini mixture, and top with 1 oz more of prosecco (this creates the snow-kissed effect)
Add a strawberry to garnish, drink and enjoy.
Lavishly live the season out loud, enjoy and cheers.
