The Bellini is a scrumptious, 1940's cocktail named after a painting by Giovanni Bellini depicting a saint in a pink toga. So why shouldn't there be a tea-totaller version for our saintly southern sisters who choose not to imbibe. Simply exchange Sprite for the sparkling wine traditionally found in the recipe.
Tea-Totaller's Peach Bellini
2 medium sized, ripe peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
1/2 cup lemonade
1/2 cup Sprite
Puree the peaches and lemonade in a blender until smooth, including an ice cube or two for a more frozen version.
Add Sprite. Stir and pour in a tall, chilled glass.
