Phoebe Lapine shows you a perfect bellini recipe, a Fresh Strawberry Bellini with some fresh grilled strawberries and a hint of mint.
Phoebe Lapine shows you how to make one of her favorite brunch cocktails, the Bellini. She does a nice summer spin on it with some grilled strawberries. This fresh strawberry Bellini recipe will be a winner at your next summer evening party. First you’re going to take your strawberries and skewer them up. Before you do this make sure you soak the skewers for about 20 minutes! This is really important because they will probably light up on fire if they go straight to the grill otherwise. Feel free to keep or take off the leaves on the strawberries, to your preference. Have two strawberries for each skewer so they fit in the glass later when you serve.
Grease your grill lightly with olive oil and when it gets hot you can place your skewers with the strawberries right on top. You want to make sure you keep on there for long enough to form some char so this will be around a minute or so on each side. You’ll then end up with the smokiness of the grill but also the freshness of the fruit that’ll make it super juicy.
Once the strawberries are all charred up and ready to for your cocktail, you can go ahead and add some cut up mint leaves into the glass before serving so you get the a nice summery fresh drink in the end. Place one skewer in each glass and finally pour in the Prosecco, which will mix really well with the juicy strawberry and the minty leaves. This delicious and refreshing bellini recipe will make a great drink for a summer night.
