Oh you breezy summer days, slowly trying to creep past me unnoticed and slip away, off into the distance... Well not today, today I claim you and take you and keep you for my own. Today I will bask in your glory and sip lightly on my delicious cocktail creation because this day was mine to take. And take I did. And so can you. Step 1: make this drink. Step 2: stop doing things, sit, bask.
Cider & Rosewater Bellini:
4 pack of Crispin Brut Cider
Bubbly-I chose a more fruity variety, Sofia Blanc de Blancs
3 Peaches, nice and ripe
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 oz. Rosewater
1) Peel and remove the pits from the peaches. Toss into a blender or a food processor with the
lemon juice and Rosewater. Puree for 30 seconds or so, or until the mixture seems smooth.
Add more lemon if needed so that it's pourable.
2) Add a 1/4 oz-1/2 oz of peach puree to the bottom of a champagne flute. Fill halfway with cider
and finish off with sparkling wine. To cut corners, just fill a pitcher with half cider and sparkling
wine, pour slow!
I love this drink because: it makes an awesome accompaniment to brunch, it's really easy, if you have leftover puree you can use it later, and it tastes like a nice dream.
