Savoring Summer Saturdays {Mango Bellinis)

 
Usually, Bellinis are made with peach puree and Prosecco, a dry Italian sparkling white wine.  I mixed things up a bit by using freshly pureed mangoes and Cava, a dry white sparkling wine from Spain. 


First, cut up one mango and place into your blender or bullet blitzer.  Pour mango juice (or just use water and a dash of sugar) covering the fruit by about an inch.  Blend until totally smooth and combined.  Drop a spoonful of this orangey goodness into the bottom of a glamorous champagne flute.


Next, pour Cava into the glass ever-so-slowly as it will foam and overflow in an instant.



Allow the bubbles to settle and continue adding wine until the glass is full and the puree has mixed around a bit.





Cheers!
