What is a Strawberry Bellini?

Strawberry Bellini Recipe Ingredients

To make this delicious bubbly cocktail, you’ll need

  • Champagne or other sparkling wine – if you like a not too sweet drink use brut champagne or sparkling while, if you like a sweet drink, I recommend using an Asti or another type of sweet champagne or sparkling wine like a prosecco
  • Triple Sec – this is an orange liqueur
  • Strawberries – get the freshest strawberries you can find!

How is a bellini different than a Mimosa?

A mimosa is typically made with orange juice, and bellinis are often made with peach puree. This recipe uses strawberries.

Ingredient Notes

I have a big tip for you, don’t spend a lot of money on champagne. In fact, you can use sparkling wine.

I suggest you use a champagne or sparkling wine that is on the sweeter side, an Asti or even a Spumante. I think it would be more like what the Grand Lux Cafe serves. Now if you don’t like sweet drinks, you can go drier with Brut.

When I am making Mimosas, Bellini’s, or anything that is going to be mixed, I make a point to buy something drinkable, but not expensive.

Champagne vs Sparkling Wine

Do you wonder – what is the difference between champagne and sparkling wine?

Champagne is made in France before the EU enabled the branding of certain products from certain regions with many wines that were sparking or fizzy called champagne. Now unless they are made n the Champagne region, they have to call it sparkling wine.
