Peach Bellini Party Punch

Holy smokes, how is it almost 2013?

You guys are all probably way cooler than I am and are either: (A) hosting a party; or (B) attending a party for New Year’s Eve.  The Tall Boy and me?  We’ll probably be chillin’ in the basement in front of the fireplace, watching football, and playing Battleship with Doodle.  Yeah, we’re really party animals here.

Also?  I might have a glass or two of this easy peach Bellini party punch.

Traditionally, Bellini’s are made with peach puree, and often contain quite a bit of sugar.  I don’t know about you, but after the sugar-induced food coma I ate myself into over the holidays, I needed to tone the sugar intake down a bit.

These Bellini’s are light, crisp, and cool–and a little more figure friendly as we head into the new year.

What are your plans?

Peach Bellini Party Punch
 
Ingredients
  • 2 ripe peaches, halved, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Sweet 'n Low packets
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 bottle prosecco or other sparkling wine (I used a Moscato, since that is what I had on hand)
  • 2 tablespoons peach schnapps
Method
  1. In a blender, combine peaches, sweetener, and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. Pour into a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap, pressing against the surface of the puree to prevent browning. Refrigerate until cold, up to two days.
  2. Combine puree, sparkling wine, and schnapps in pitcher and stir to combine. Fill champagne glasses with ice and pour mixture over ice.
Notes
for a non-alcoholic version, add two or three teaspoons peach puree to an ice-filled glass, and top with peach sparkling soda (such as Fresca)

    Eek, I’ve never had a peach bellini! But since you are my alcohol guru (hello, midori sours are my favorite and I order them EVERYWHERE!!) I need to try this punch! Especially love that it’s lightened up, because I like to keep my sugar in the form of blondies and cookies, haha. And Happy New Year! I cannot WAIT to meet you in 2013!!

    I made these for Superbowl Sunday (I needed something to distract me from football and beer – not my favorites). I used one Stevia packet (didn’t have S&L) with a sweet champagne. After mixing in the purée, I put the entire pitcher in the freezer until slushy. They were so good! Thank you for this recipe!!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
