This Strawberry Coconut Bellini is a deliciously sweet, refreshing, tropical twist on the original! Made with just four ingredients, it’s the perfect cocktail for brunch, ladies night, or any night….and you won’t believe how easy it is to make!
So. I’m pretty much obsessed with Prosecco lately. I mean….can you blame me? It combines two of my favorites, wine and bubbles, in one perfect drink. And it’s SO refreshing for summer. I’ve been drinking a lot of it these past few months, and I’ve been turning my friends onto it, too. Because if there’s one thing that’s better than Prosecco? It’s Prosecco with friends.
But now that summer is half over (eeeeek!) I’m thinking it’s time to switch things up a little. Not by giving up on Prosecco (that’s just crazy talk) but by having a little fun with it! In the form of delicious bubbly cocktails! Because summer was made for cocktails…am I right? Especially bubbly ones.
So I combined a couple of my other summer favorites, strawberry and coconut, and this Strawberry Coconut Bellini was born. And let me just say….YUM! It’s seriously SO delicious! And sweet, and tropical, and refreshing, and perfect. I can see myself drinking this all summer long…for brunch and ladies nights and pretty much all the time. The ONLY problem with it? I don’t use up all the Prosecco!
Which, if you drink sparkling wine, you know is a bit of a tragedy. Or it used to be….but I recently had the chance to try out the zzysh® sparkling wine preserver and it works SO well! It’s designed to preserve flavor, color, taste, and fizz by replacing the air inside the bottle with a highly pure, protective atmosphere. There’s a preserver for regular wine, which uses argon gas, and the one for sparkling wine, which uses a mixture of argon gas and CO2.
And it couldn’t be easier to use. Just push the stopper into the open bottle and press the bracket against the bottle neck until you hear a click. Next attach the handpick and press it down for 3-4 seconds. You will hear a zzysh as the controlled atmosphere flows into the bottle. And….voila! Your wine is preserved, so you can enjoy next time without sacrificing any of the flavor. I was honestly amazed when I opened the bottle back up….it was like I was opening it for the first time! Which has this Prosecco lover VERY excited.
Speaking of excited, I’m super excited about this Strawberry Coconut Bellini. And once you try it, YOU WILL BE TOO! If you love strawberry, and coconut, and cocktails…..this Strawberry Coconut Bellini is a slam dunk. Your new favorite cocktail. And mine, too!
