4 Refreshing And Fruity Wine Cocktails

Wine cocktails are so much more than sangria and we have found four mouth watering cocktails for you to try! There is nothing like a glass of wine, at least in my book, but sometimes you want to taste something “different”. If you love watermelon, berries, pomegranate and peaches….give these a whirl and see if you don’t find them as refreshing as we did.  Cheers!

WATERMELON-MOSCATO SLUSH

INGREDIENTS
6 c. watermelon cubes, seeds removed
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 c. Moscato (or other slightly sweet white wine)

INSTRUCTIONS
Place watermelon cubes, sugar, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Pour through a strainer to remove the pulp. Place strained liquid in a glass baking dish and stir in the Moscato.
Place the baking dish in the freezer and freeze the mixture for 2 to 3 hours, stirring with a fork every 45 minutes or so to break up ice crystals.
When ready to serve, spoon the watermelon slush into a wine (or other) glass, filling the glass about 3/4 full. Pour in wine and stir.

PEACH BELLINI COCKTAIL

Easy recipe for the peach Bellini cocktail, made with fresh peach puree, prosecco or sparkling wine, and a dash of raspberry liqueur.

INGREDIENTS

4 ripe peaches, seeds removed and quartered, peeled or not – based on your preference
1/3 cup water
Sugar or sweetener, if needed, to taste
1 750 ml bottle of prosecco or sparkling wine, chilled
Raspberry liqueur – optional
Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS

Blend the peaches, sugar if desired, and water until you have smooth puree.
Strain the peach puree; you should have more or less 3 cups of strained peach puree. Chill the peach puree for a couple of hours or until ready to use
To prepare the Bellini, pour the peach puree into champagne flutes or tall glasses, add a dash of raspberry liqueur, and gently top off with the prosecco or sparkling wine. The ratio is about 1:1 or 1:1.5 between peach puree and prosecco. For each drink I usually use about 2 liquid ounces (60 ml, 4 tbs or ¼ cup) of the peach puree about 2-3 liquid ounces of prosecco.

For a frozen peach Bellini, mix the puree, champagne, and ice in a blender, serve with a drizzle of raspberry liqueur. For a mocktail or non-alcoholic peach Bellini, replace the prosecco or sparkling wine with chilled sparkling lemonade or sparkling white grape juice.
