Summer isn't over yet! Get ready to turn up the summer vibes with the ultimate sip-sensation: the Bellini Twist!

If your taste buds are ready to do the tango and your summer plans need a splash of pizzazz, then buckle up, because this cocktail is about to become your new sunshine sidekick. Think of the Bellini Twist as a peachy-keen party crasher that's here to shake up your summer routine in the best way possible.

ingredients

  • 1 bottles  champagne, chilled (we love this paired with Pommery - Brut or Mumm's Napa Prestige)
  • 1 1/2 cups pear nectar
  • 1 medium Asian pears, cored and sliced
  • 12oz  thinly sliced fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/4 cup plain or pear vodka
  • Fresh pear slices for the garnish

directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine pear nectar, pears, ginger and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until pears are softened. Cool.
  2. Place mixture in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Press mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. Stir in vodka. Pour 1-1/2 ounces into each champagne flute or cocktail glass. Top with champagne. Serve with pear slices.

Cheers!
