Frambellini



The traditional Bellini cocktail, invented in Venice in 1934, involves fizzy wine and peach puree, chilled and stirred. But raspberries are at least as good as peaches, so take some sparkling wine and add some blended raspberries instead. I call it the Frambellini. The conventional Bellini recipe suggested one part puree to two parts wine. The one pictured above used just a dash or two of fruit, topped up with bubbles. It depends what you're after: a boozy fruit drink or a glass of bubbly with a hint of fruit. The choice is yours.
