Stone Fruit Bellini

The end of Summer is drawing near, and before you know it Fall will be in full swing. It's time to squeeze in that final Summer vacation, kick back, and relax. And what better way to enjoy a vacation than with a delicious refreshing cocktail? Lucky for you, I have just the thing! As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I created a beautiful summer cocktail featuring Sweet'N Low.

This Stone Fruit Bellini uses fresh seasonal stone fruits accompanied by bubbly champagne to create the perfect end of Summer cocktail. What's even better? The addition of Sweet'N Low allows you to sip away without feeling the guilt of a sugary cocktail. That's right, now things can be sweeter and lower in sugar when you use Sweet'N Low as a replacement for sugar!

Make this Stone Fruit Bellini for your end of summer vacation or bring a pitcher along with you to your Labor Day party!

1 apricot
1 white nectarine
2 yellow peaches
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Sweet'N Low
1 bottle chilled champagne
2 cups ice


Cut one yellow peach into wedges and set aside.

Peel the remaining yellow peach, white nectarine, and apricot. Halve, pit, and coarsely chop. Place the chopped fruit in a mini-processor or blender. Add lemon juice and Sweet'N Low and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a large pitcher.

Add bottle of champagne to the pitcher and stir well to combine. Add the ice and remaining peach wedges to the pitcher. Chill for at least one hour. Garnish with basil before serving.

Disclosure: As a part of the DailyBuzz Food Tastemaker program, Sweet'N Low™ provided me with a stipend and product for sampling. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Thank you! You can try it with any stone fruit you want! Plums or cherries would be good too!
