Peach Bellini

I'm so excited to be part of this Food Blogger Blast where Alice Phillips of What's for Dinner, Ally's Kitchen will showcase this recipe and several others at the Dole Bistro where she'll be cooking 'live on green' December 29 and 30th as part of the Tournament of Roses Parade.

This year’s theme for the Dole Packaged Foods, LLC float is ‘Soaring over Paradise.' On January 1, tune in to watch the Tournament of Roses Parade where Dole Packaged Food’s float, “Soaring Over Paradise,” explores the world’s rain forests. The float includes four waterfalls, a zip line that travels through the rain forest canopy and a flock of Macaws that appear to take flight over the floral gardens. Featured throughout the float are Dole’s non-GMO fruits, including bananas, pineapples, strawberries and mangoes.

These Peach Bellini's are a fun, sparkling party drink. They would also be a wonderful addition to a Sunday Brunch or special occasion dinner, and are super-easy to make. It's a light, sparkling and delicious drink your guests are sure to enjoy. I personally love the fizz of the champagne tickling my tongue when I drink it, and the yummy "peachy" flavor from the Dole peaches.  #dolerose
