Silver Wedding Party Cocktails – Peach Bellinis

Recently we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (yes, you’re right I really am far too young to have been married so long, thank you ). We debated for ages over what to do to celebrate, and eventually decided on a small garden party, on a grand scale, on as small a budget as we could manage.

For the cocktail reception to greet our guests we decided three cocktails plus soft drinks – and we wanted them to reflect something about *us*.

The first obvious choice was the Peach Bellini – Venice holds a special place in our hearts as a family, and this classic was born in Harry’s Bar at the height of the Hollywood Glamour era that I love.

It’s a simple recipe, but you do need the right ingredients, and ripe white peaches aren’t so easy to come by in Blighty as they are in Italy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled, halved and stone removed. You can use tinned peaches in natural juice, but if you can’t get them fresh I think the closest replacement (and the one we used) was Funkin White Peach
  • chilled champagne or sparkling wine – we used Prosecco
  • chilled glasses

Recipe:

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
