Strawberry Nectarine Lime Bellini

This strawberry nectarine lime bellini is a super refreshing summer drink.

Want to know the best way to start off the weekend?


After seeing Jessica’s triple berry mojitos yesterday I was inspired.

Strawberry nectarine lime bellini

Inspired to finally make simple syrup for myself.

Inspired to puree fruit in a blender.

And mostly, inspired to drink.

After a 7 day work week, I think I deserved it.

I didn’t think ripe summer fruit could get better than it already is but, I was wrong.

Champagne tends to have that effect on things.

Need to forget about the work week stresses? Make this.

Want to pretend you’re on vacation on a tropical island? Make this.

Need to drown out the 10 neighborhood kids screaming for 5 hours straight as they jump in the pool? Make this.

I had to wait until 5pm to drink this yesterday. Lucky for you it’s Saturday, what are you waiting for?

Can this drink be made and stored in the refrigerator ahead of time? I have a family party Saturday, and plan on making this in (very) large quantities but I will be going straight from work so I was hoping to have it all put together Friday night.

I wouldn't make the entire thing ahead of time b/c I'd worry about the champagne and club soda going flat. But, you could definitely make the simple syrup and fruit puree ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. Then just assemble with the remaining ingredients once the party starts. Those are the 2 time consuming things anway so putting everything together wouldn't take long at all. Hope you enjoy it if you make it this weekend!
