Happy Hour: The Classic Bellini

If you have yet to consume a bellini this peach season, drop everything you are doing and run to the nearest grocery store or high-end watering hole. Bellinis are one of my favorite things about summer — the fresh white peach puree mixed with sparkling Italian Prosecco makes for a tasty, fabulous cocktail. Oozing with chicness, this drink is simple to make and a nice alternative to a mimosa. It's the perfect Friday afternoon cocktail and a great way to treat yourself and the gals after a long week. If you don't have Prosecco substitute your favorite sparkling wine or Champagne. To see how easy they are to make,
