Blueberry Ginger Bellini
From EatingWell: July/August 2007
Muddling is is a traditional bartending technique where herbs and/or fruit are crushed, releasing their full flavor into a cocktail. Here we muddle blueberries and ginger with sugar and lemon to add another dimension to our take on a bellini.
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 2 cups blueberry juice
- 2 cups sparkling wine, divided
- Mash blueberries with ginger, sugar and lemon juice. Add blueberry juice and let steep for at least 5 minutes. Strain; divide among 4 champagne flutes. Top each with 1/2 cup sparkling wine.
