Drink of the Week: Mother’s Day Bellini

This week’s drink of the week is in the spirit of a good, old-fashioned do-it-yourself Mother’s Day brunch. Homemade pancakes, omelets, French toast, bacon plus this refresher are an excellent way to show mom how much you appreciate she does for you on the daily. A twist on a basic brunch staple, the Bellini Mimosa is enhanced with peach nectar and fresh peach slices and adds a classy vibe to an at-home meal. The prep time does not exceed five minutes and all you need are four simple ingredients – fresh peach slices, chilled peach nectar, sparkling rose (prosecco or champagne work just as well), and grenadine syrup. Next, follow these quick steps:

1. Put some fresh peach slices into wineglasses and add some chilled peach nectar to cover.
2. Top with well-chilled sparkling rosé wine, prosecco, or Champagne.
3. Add a drop of grenadine syrup to each drink.

Toast to mom’s awesomeness and enjoy! Joe Canal’s of Rio Grande is a great destination to grab the sparkling wine of your choice for these Bellini Mimosas. They feature a sprawling wine section, organized by region, wine type, and producer. This knowledgeable staff is more than happy to match you with the wine to suit your palate and purpose.
