Favourite Thing- Peach Bellini

When I was in university, I always took a class in the summer. I did this so I wouldn't have to take a full course load during the actual school year- giving me more time to focus on the social aspect of university without having my education suffer- and still graduate on time.

One summer, I took Popular Film as my summer course and a friend from high school happened to be taking the same class. It was during this class that she was talking about how much she loved Peach Bellini's and it was her 'go to' drink in the summer. I had never heard of this drink, never mind tried it. She told me that I HAD to try one the next time I was out.

A few days later, I found myself sitting on a patio of a favourite restaurant with some friends and I noticed that they had Peach Bellini on the menu. Remembering that my friend said I HAD to try one, I ordered one.

I right away saw why this was her summer go to drink! Bellini's- which can come in several flavours, but peach is the original- are so refreshing! The drink is a combination of peach puree and sparkling white wine. Some places use white wine spritzer, some places add sangria and some places serve a frozen version of the drink.

The next time you are out for drinks, especially if it's summer, I highly recommend ordering a Peach Bellini. Alternatively, I'm sure you can find a recipe online so you can make it at home. I'd also imagine, you can make a non-alcoholic version of this drink, using peach puree and 7-Up/Sprite/Club Soda.
