Apricot St. Germain Bellini
Ingredients for one large(!) drink
3 oz apricot puree (directions below)
3 oz oz St. Germain
Champagne or Prosecco to fill whatever size glass you think you deserve
To make Apricot Puree (this amount is good for 2 big ol drinks like above or 4 dainty ones): Take 3- 4 small apricots and with a sharp knife score them with a big x. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil, drop in the apricots for 30 seconds to a minute, then remove and cool. Peel the skin of the apricots, pit them, and put them in a blender. Puree the apricots. If you taste the puree and want it a bit sweeter, add a little sugar. I did not since I find St. Germain pretty sweet.
Directions for cocktail:
- In a chilled glass combine the St. Germain and Apricot puree and stir with a cocktail spoon.
- Top off with champagne.
- Voila, serenity.
