When the weather warms up in Prince Edward wine country (aka The County), Hinterland Winery toasts the season by serving up adult slushies. We really like their thinking so we joined on in and started making these Frozen Peach Bellinis, which have quickly become a summertime favorite around here.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen firm ripe peaches

    plus fresh peach slices for garnish

  • 1/2 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
  • 1 (750) ml bottle chilled brut Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup or simple syrup
  • firm ripe peaches

    thinly sliced, for garnish

Instructions

Combine frozen or peeled fresh peaches (add 1 cup of ice if using fresh peaches), orange juice, 1 1/2 cups of the sparkling wine, and simple syrup in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Tip

Ontario peach season doesn’t kick off until July, so until then, canned peaches work just fine. If you’re choosing to use fresh peaches, be sure to remove the skins before proceeding.

Divide mixture among 8 Champagne flutes then top each with a bit of sparkling wine, garnish with a peach slice, and serve. 

Tip

If making ahead of time, freeze mixture in the glasses then let defrost a few minutes before topping with the sparkling wine and serving.
