A Refreshing Summer Drink Bursting with Mediterranean Flavour!

In the past year or two I have become a huge fan of flavoured sparkling water. I have never been a huge pop drinker but when I did drink pop I would always reach for a diet cola.  As I have been learning more about healthy eating the idea of drinking diet pop is actually not that appealing anymore when you think about it. So when I was asked to try out SANPELLEGRINO® Momenti I was super excited.

I am not just saying this because I have created a recipe for them in this post, but the Clemenine & Peach Momenti is absolutely delicious!  It has a vibrant and surprising flavor mix of real fruit juice and light refreshing bubbles… not too overpowering.  Most importantly each can is only 35 calories and has no added sugar or artificial sweeteners! You can find any of these three SANPELLEGRINO Momenti flavours now in Walmart or have it shipped in like I did for pick up.

Hover over the image above to shop SANPELLEGRINO Momenti at Walmart! Having tasted this I instantly knew this drink would be great in a Bellini.  And with the light refreshing bubbles it works perfectly to replace the Prosecco usually found in a traditional Bellini.  This way everyone, even the kiddos, can feel fancy with a pretty drink and enjoy a burst  of colour and flavour this summer!

How To Make This Frozen Basil Bellini Mocktail Recipe

For two Bellini mocktails you will need 1 cup of frozen peach slices, 1 cup of ice, a handful of fresh basil leaves, 1/2 cup sugar, water and 1 can of SANPELLEGRINO Momenti Clementine & Peach. First in a small pot add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 a cup of water.  Rub 6 large fresh basil leaves in your hands gently to release the oils.  Then add them to the pot over medium heat.  Stir once halfway through to allow the sugar and water to melt and create a syrup. A small pot of sugar and water with some fresh basil leaves to create a basil simple syrup.

Once sugar has dissolved and liquid just starts to bubble slightly remove the pot and let the basil leaves steep for about 15 minutes.  Then gently pour the syrup into a small glass container over a sieve to strain out the basil leaves.  Once done let liquid cool.  Any unused syrup can be stored covered in the fridge for up 2 or 3 weeks.

Fun Fact:  Where Did The Bellini Come From?

The history of the first Bellini goes back 1948 in a small bar in Venice, Italy where the owner of a bar named Harry’s created this iconic beverage.  The owner, Giuseppe Cipriani, was know for his lively conversation skills and many historical figures such as Humphrey Bogart and Ernest Hemingway would visit to engage in his lively and frank banter.

The original Bellini recipe calls to gently stir two parts Prosecco and one part fresh peach purée, served in a chilled flute. It is said that the drink’s characteristic sunset shade reminded the bartender of the 15th-century paintings of an artist named Giovani Bellini, hence the name.  Want to know more?  Check out this article on the Bellini’s history on Eataly.com
