Our Wild Plum Bellini Cocktail is a fun play on a classic Bellini Cocktail and was designed specially for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in June 2012.
- 1 measure of Wild Bullace Liqueur 23%
- 3 measures of Prosecco (or Champagne or other sparkling wine)
- Fresh Plums (preferably Damsons) Fresh Mint
This is a long drink that should be ideally served in Champagne Flutes or another similar tall glass. Take a good handful of fresh ripe plums (preferably damsons), wash and then liquidize with a blender into a smooth paste. Chill for an hour prior to adding a teaspoon full of the fruit purée to the glass. Add the measure of Wild Bullace Liqueur and top up with chilled Prosecco. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve immediately. Seasonally, and for added effect this cocktail can be made with our Sloe Gin Liqueur, Damson Gin Liqueur or Blackcurrant Gin Liqueur and include puréed fruit from Sloe, Bullace, Damson and other plum family fruit trees.
Anything else I should know?
The original Bellini is a long cocktail drink that originated in Venice in the 1930's. It is a mixture of sparkling wine (traditionally Prosecco) and peach purée often served at celebrations. It is one of Italy's most popular cocktails. We are sure that our new style Wild Plum Bellini will not only bring on the Summer sun, but hopefully keep it shining throughout the whole of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year!
