Step 1: This Harvest Bellini & Sangria Bar comes together in minutes. Slice the fruits. I found mulberries at my farmers market and added them to the mix. Bellini is a classic peach & sparkling wine concoction, so I used peaches, nectarines & an Italian sparkling rose wine. Instead of doing all the traditional prep for Bellinis with syrup and peach nectar, I serve some sorbet on the side and let the fresh peaches speak up.
Step 2: Sangria is more open. I use a combo of fruits like apples & pears w/ some citrus for zing. I like a mix of red and white wines for a light and fruity punch. You can even serve sparkling water or wine along side for a sparkling sangria. Add any herbs you fancy. I like lemon verbena, lemon balm, mint & pineapple sage.
Step 3: Set out an array of glasses. I always add a few small cordial glasses for those that want ‘just a sip!’ I like to add a hefty pinch of cardamom to my sangria. Its earthy fragrance is a conversation starter. Left over sangria keeps in the fridge for several weeks. The fruits only get better. You didn’t hear it from me, but sangria fruits on a Sunday. brunch oatmeal start the day off mighty fine!
