Frozen peach and Prosecco bellinis
SmartPoints® value per serving
These fantastic frozen drinks are inspired by Italy. Serve them at your next cocktail party or happy hour gathering with some Italian cheeses, melon and prosciutto. Bellinis are an eye-catching cocktail, with their sunset peachy color and fresh peach garnish. Serve the drinks in stemware that's as beautiful as its content. Prosecco is Italy's version of Champagne, and it's far less pricey. While Italian bubbly is perfect for this light, summery cocktail, you could substitute Cava (Spanish) or a Crémant (a French sparkling wine from a region outside Champagne, such as the Loire or Bourgogne) or a sparkling wine from California with similar results.
