ITALIAN APERITIF: BELLINI AND ROSSINI COCKTAILS

aperitif bellini rossini cocktail recipe

There is nothing better than spending your Saturday night with people you love and, if
it is accompanied by a fresh cocktail... it is just perfection.
Here in Italy we love so much happyhour moment and the King of happyhours is,
of course, our Prosecco wine.
I mean, enjoying a glass of Prosecco while talking and waiting for dinner is the best
way to leave all your week thoughts outside and to feel like on holiday.
Yesterday I celebrated with my family my brother's 15th birthday, so I decided
to prepare myself the drinks and I opted for two famous Italian cocktail, perfect
for warm days and relaxing moments: the Bellini and the Rossini.
The nice thing is that these two cocktails are not only delicious, but also not too alcohol
and, girls, low calories!
Of course, if you drink 5 glasses it is not the best for your health, but if you will 
enjoy one (or two!) of these you won't have to run the next day because of your guilt.
   Let's see together how to prepare the Bellini and the Rossini cocktails!

Non c'è niente di meglio che passare il Sabato sera con le persone che ami e, se ciò 
è anche accompagnato da un cocktail fresco... beh, è perfezione.
Qui in Italia amiamo molto il momento dell' happyhour ed il Re dei nostri aperitivi è,
ovviamente, il nostro vino Prosecco.
Diciamocelo, godersi un bel bicchiere di Prosecco chiacchierando ed aspettando la cena
è il modo migliore per lasciar fuori dalla porta tutti i pensieri della settimana e 
sentirsi come in vacanza.
Ieri ho festeggiato con la mia famiglia il quindicesimo compleanno di mio fratello, così
ho deciso di preparare io stessa i drink e ho optato per due famosi cocktail italiani,
perfetti per una giornata calda e momenti di relax: il Bellini ed il Rossini.
La cosa bella è che questi due drink non sono solo deliziosi, ma anche non troppo alcolici e,
ragazze, con poche calorie!
Ovvio, berne 5 bicchieri non è il massimo per la vostra salute, ma se ve ne godrete uno
(o due!) non dovrete andare a correre il giorno dopo per i vostri sensi di colpa.
Vediamo insieme come preparare il Bellini ed il Rossini!

Time // Tempo:

10 minutes. // 10 minuti.

Difficulty // Difficoltà:
Super easy. // Super facile.

Ingredients // Ingredienti:
- Prosecco wine (cold, so you will put it off the fridge only at guests' arrival). // 
Vino Prosecco (freddo, quindi lo toglierete dal frigo solo all'arrivo degli ospiti).
- Strawberries (one bowl). // Fragole (una vaschetta).
- 4 or 5 peaches. // 4 or 5 pesche.
- 2 bowls. // 2 ciotole.
- Blender. // Frullatore.
- Flutes. // Calici.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Clean the fruit and remove pits from peaches, then cut fruit grossly. // Pulire la frutta
e rimuovere i noccioli dalle pesche, poi tagliare la frutta grossolanamente.


2)
Blend the strawberries and pour the juice in one of the two bowls. The original recipe 
doesn't want the blender, but hand-crushing, I had few time and opted for practicality. Feel free
 to try out the way you prefer! // Frullate le fragole e versate il succo in una delle 
due ciotole. La ricetta originale non prevede il frullatore, ma che la frutta sia schiacciata
 a mano. Io, avendo poco tempo, ho optato per la praticità, voi sentitevi libere di
adoperare il modo che preferite!


3)
Repeat with the peaches. // Ripetete con le pesche.


4)
Prepare the flutes and two spoons on the table. // Mettete a tavola i flute e due cucchiai.


And wait for your guests taking photos (haha!). // Ed aspettate gli ospiti facendo
qualche fotografia (ahah!).


5)
Once your guests are arrived, take the Prosecco and the bowls. Start pouring Prosecco
in all the glasses, then the peaches and strawberries juices, separately. The proportion is:
2/3 Prosecco, 1/3 juice. Now blend, DELICATELY. // Una volta che gli ospiti sono 
arrivati, prendete il Prosecco e le ciotole. Cominciate a versare il Prosecco in
tutti i bicchieri, poi il succo delle pesche e delle fragole, separatamente. La proporzione è: 
2/3 Prosecco, 1/3 succo. Ora mescolate, DELICATAMENTE.
