Happy Hour: Blood Orange Bellini

Fashion Week started on Friday and I thought for today's happy hour cocktail I would do my favorite fashionable drink recipe, the Bellini. I first became obsessed with drinking Bellinis while reading Bergdorf Blondes. Typically a Bellini is made with fresh white peach puree but since it's winter I say we substitute the peach puree with blood orange juice. If you have never had a Bellini you MUST try one right now. Oh my gosh, this is the first time ever that I want to get up and leave my desk, run down to Whole Foods for some blood oranges, and stir up a Bellini for everyone in the office. To do the same,


Blood Orange Bellini
From Mario Batali

Champagne flutes
1 (750 ml) bottle prosecco
1 quart blood orange juice, or 15 blood oranges, juiced

  1. Place the flutes in the freezer.
  2. Chill the prosecco on ice for 30 minutes.
  3. Open the prosecco and let it stand at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour 2 ounces of blood orange juice into each glass. Fill to within 1/2-inch of the top of the glass with prosecco and serve.

I love blood orange. We used some in a new cocktail we created for our underground restaurant. We used saffron-infused vodka, a tiny bit of lime, blood orange juice, Bokker's bitters (a type of bitters that was last found about 100 years ago, I think...my friend makes his own!) and a little bit of simple syrup. Blood orange bellinis would be awesome.
