For something a bit more fun, fresh, and simple that Cancers can prepare for friends and family we have the Stable-ini as the next in our Mixtrology Series of Cocktails! Even the moodiest Cancer will perk up with a sip of this delicious peach concoction that takes only two ingredients! You might be used to a bellini made with some overly sweetened peach nectar or artificial tasting peach liqueur. We’ve decided to give this cocktail a fresh take with a seasonal favorite, ripe white peaches!
No fresh peaches on hand? Defrosted frozen peaches can also be great for this puree. Because we only need two ingredients, the quality of the peach puree is what is going to make this drink shine! So if you’re a Cancer who is devoted to bringing the best version of this recipe to brunch then I suggest investing in a good blender, setting a pot to boil, and getting ready to peel some peaches. Breaking out of your comfort zone can be tough but trust us when we say that peeling fresh peaches will make a world of difference.
This cocktail can make a lovely drink to accompany brunch in bed for your partner and show them just how much you care without having to pull too many bells and whistles. Garnish with a fresh peach or slice of strawberry to give it a pop of color and let yourself enjoy after a night of feeling crabby.
- 4 oz prosecco, chilled
- 2 oz fresh peach puree
1. If you’re using defrosted peaches, skip this step! Bring a pot of water to boil, use a knife to slice a shallow “X’” at the base of your peach, and dunk it in the boiling water for about 20 seconds. Remove and place in a bowl of ice water. Starting from the “X”, begin peeling off the peach skin with ease! After discarding the skin you can slice the peach in half, remove the pit, and get ready to make your puree.
2. Place your halved peaches in a blender or food processor, and blend until your puree is completely smooth. To keep your drink chill, place your puree blend into the fridge for 30 minutes.
3. Once everything is ready, pour 2oz (or ¼ cup) of the peach puree into a chilled champagne flute. Pour your favorite Prosecco into the glass and be careful not to overflow. Stir with a spoon until combined.
4. Top it off with a little more Prosecco and it’s ready to serve! Add a peach slice as a garnish or a strawberry to give it some added color.
