Bellini Martini

Whoa – I have a lot of catching up to do.  First things first, the other peach drink from last weekend….The Bellini Martini. (Find the original recipe here – you’ll find it at the bottom of the page)

Start with an ice-filled shaker and add 2 oz vodka, 1 oz peach schnapps, and 1 oz peach nectar. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Top with 1 oz of champagne.

The original recipe shows a pink hued drink. I have no idea where they got the pink color from, unless they used a tinted vodka or added food coloring. My drink came out more of a peachy color from the peach nectar. You could add some food coloring if you want, for presentation, but it certainly isn’t necessary.

Don’t let the dainty appearance fool you – this drink is powerful. The peach and raspberry flavors are nice and refreshing. This is a great late spring-early summer drink.
