Put a few bottles of sparkling wine on ice, set out a selection of fruit purées and some pretty glasses, and your DIY bellini bar is complete. Each fruit blend makes about 1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) purée, or enough for a bottle’s worth of sparkling wine.

Ingredients

  • Fruit purée of choice
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) dry sparkling wine, Champagne, or Prosecco, chilled
  • Fresh fruit for garnish

    Method

    Make one fruit purée at a time: In a blender, combine the fruit and sugar, and (if using) the brandy or lemon juice. Blend to a smooth purée. Taste and add more sugar if needed; the purée should be sweet but not overly sweet. Pour the purée into a small pitcher or carafe, straining it through a coarse sieve if a smooth consistency is desired.

    Fill 6 Champagne flutes about one-third full with the fruit purée. Slowly fill the flutes with the sparkling wine. Stir briefly and serve, garnished with fresh fruit.
