Ingredients
Jam Bellini
  • 3 tablespoons Blackberry Purée (see below) or any fruit purée
  • 4 ounces Prosecco or other dry sparkling wine, chilled
Tools
  • Barspoon, toothpick or cocktail stick
Glass
  • Champagne flute or glass jar
Garnish
  • 3 blackberries on a toothpick
Blackberry Purée
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups very ripe blackberries
Instructions
Jam Bellini
  1. Pour the purée carefully into the glass. Slowly add the sparkling wine, stirring as you do to combine the purée with the bubbly. Garnish with the blackberries on the toothpick or cocktail stick.

Blackberry Purée
  1. Make a simple syrup by combining the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil until the sugar has dissolved completely. Set aside to cool.

  2. In a blender, purée the blackberries, lemon juice and the simple syrup together. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any seeds and to ensure the purée is smooth.

  3. Alternatively, if you don't have a blender, place the blackberries, lemon juice, sugar and 2 tablespoons of water in a nonreactive saucepan. Heat slowly until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer until the blackberries have broken up in the pan. Then strain through a fine mesh strainer.

  4. Once made, store in the refrigerator and use within a couple of days. This recipe makes about 5 servings.
