Some fresh fruit in the house? Well by all means, mix up a cocktail. My Sister in Law was here this weekend. I had some fresh peach puree (no they were not white peaches) and decided to try the beloved Bellini. I used some champagne. A little improv here, I did not have Prosecco for this drink. But you know what, no Prosecco and no white peaches, didn't matter, they tasted great! At least to me. My husband had just enough of them that I actually beat him at cards. That never happens. My husband is one of those count all the cards, stare at your reactions and know what is going on at all times. Me, I am more of one of those fly by the seat of my pants and relax kind of card players. He wins, I dont. Now I know what to do next time. Bellini, Martini, Margarita, anything that will distract the man will work!

So puree your peaches and pour in your champagne. (They say Asti Spumante works as well.) Enjoy a glass or two!
