Sunday celebration :: Apricot Bellini Aperitivo

www.bellacucina.com

Sunday is one of my favorite days. Aside from being a day to sleep and lounge around, it’s also a day me and my handsome celebrate. Why shouldn’t every Sunday be special?Especially when there’s sizzling applewood smoked bacon cooking on the stovetop and the sound of the POP of a bottle of bubbly. This particular Sunday, we’ve amped up the celebration with a little twist on the traditional bellini (traditionally made with pureed peach nectar) by using our Organic Artisan Preserved Apricots blended with a bit of its almond-y cane sugar simple syrup. Let the celebration begin.  Salute! 

Ingredients:
4 Preserved Apricots
2 Tablespoons apricot syrup
1 bottle of chilled Prosecco or sparkling white wine

In a blender, puree the apricots and syrup. Pour 1-2 Tablespoons of the puree into chilled champagne glasses and top off with chilled prosecco or champagne. Sip and savor until supply lasts.
