How to Create Delicious Fruit Bellini Purees

Here's to Bellini season! Of course, every season is perfect for a Bellini, if we're being honest. We genuinely feel that adding a bit of fizz to festivities is essential. Because of this, we've whipped up a DIY guide on all things bubbly.

First things first: find a suitable workspace. Perhaps it's a table or a countertop. From here, create your own Bellini puree with a medley of stone fruits and berries. Simply blitz them in a food processor, strain, and add simple key ingredients like lemon juice or sweetener, if you so choose. Don't hesitate to add herbs for a touch of freshness.

Get your champagne bottles and glasses chilling, so they're perfectly frosty for your arriving guests. Arrange small bowls filled with a variety of berries and fruity slices for a festive and visually striking garnish. Feeling really festive and creative? Go ahead and toss in herbs, stir sticks or even tinsel drink stirrers for an extra sprinkle of Christmas charm.
