Just Peachy – The Summer Bellini

Peaches are in season and what better way to enjoy them than in a cold, frosty drink! I'm obsessed with Peach Bellinis and decided to try them blended for a cold, refreshing summer cocktail. Here's the recipe, but careful, these drinks are absolutely ADDICTIVE!

Ingredients:
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 2 oz champagne
- 1 oz peach schnapps
- 1 oz vodka
- 1/2 cup peach nectar (this can be found in the Mexican cuisine area of your grocery store)
- 3-4 ice cubes

Directions: Blend all ingredients together in a blender. Makes 1. *TIP: the typical bag of frozen peaches (16oz) makes 4 drinks so grab extra if you're serving friends 🙂

Counting calories or looking for a mocktail version? Ditch the alcohol and sub another 1/4-1/2 cup of peach nectar for strong peach flavor or try pineapple juice for a fruity version. I've also tried sparkling white grape juice just to maintain the fizzy factor.
