(better than) milestones bellini

I love the frozen (not at all authentic) bellini at Milestones and my sister told me that her and her friend once made bellinis in an ice cream maker which gets you that nice slushy consistency.  Well, Rock got me an ice cream maker for mother’s day so of course I had to give it a try and today’s a bright sunny Sunday so what better day for it.  I know that a true bellini is prosecco poured over pureed peaches and I looked up the drink’s description on the restaurant’s menu. I also googled copycat recipes which all seem to say that there’s 7-Up in it and peach drink powder.  I guess the 7-up is what makes it taste like freaking candy and the peach powder is what makes it a bright orange colour but I wanted to use fresh peaches instead.  We ended up with bomb ass bellinis that we drank sitting out in the sun.

This makes 2.  I wish we made more.

5 oz prosecco  or another sparkling white wine of your choice  /  1 oz white rum (which I forgot for the photo)  /  2 ripe white peaches  /  300 ml 7-Up  /  1-2 oz sangria (we just poured, I don’t really know how much)

Peel the skin off the peaches and cut the flesh off the pit.  Using a handheld immersion blender (or if you don’t have one, a regular blender), puree the peaches in the blender jar until smooth.  Slowly pour the 7-Up into the jar and then the prosecco and rum.  Just using a spoon stir everything together.

Pour into your ice cream maker and let it do its thing until you get a slushy consistency.  This is the ice cream maker Rock got for me and I used the sorbet mode for about 15 minutes.

Spoon into your glasses and then top with sangria.  Enjoy!
