DOTW: Apricot Belli-Not-So-Tini

The Bellini is a classic brunch drink that has as of late fallen by the waist side in lieu of the rise of bottomless mimosa. It is a simple, a delightful cocktail perfect for a home brunch. There are many ways to add a bit of a twist, most often people simply change out the traditional white peach purée for another fruit. But we wouldn’t be Infusiasm if that’s all we settled for.

Apricot Belli-Not-So-Tini

1 ½ oz. apricot infused vodka
2 oz. white peach purée
3 oz. champagne

– pour purée into a chilled champagne glass
– slowly to with champagne and stir to mix
– stir to mix
– top with apricot infused vodka
garnish: peach or apricot slice


The apricot sits in the wings until the peach dulls and then you find a nice surprise on the back-end. Do be careful though; this drinks light but intoxicates heavy.
