Bobby Flay's Tips for a Great Bellini Bar

By: Cooking Channel

On Bobby Flay's Basket of Brunch Goodies episode of Brunch @ Bobby's (which you can watch in full here), Bobby cooks up a spread of American favorites like Shoo-Fly Muffins, Banana Bread with Vanilla Bean-Pecan Butter and homemade Fruit Filled Mini Toaster Pastries! Then he creates a one-of-a-kind bellini bar that is sure to impress any brunch guest.

There are several benefits to putting together a bellini bar if you're hosting a continental brunch. They're delicious and everyone will have fun making their own cocktails. Traditionally, the bellini is made with a white peach puree and topped with prosecco (it originated in Venice) but you can put any sparkling wine on ice and put out a variety of add-ins.

Bobby Flay's suggestions for a great bellini bar:
California sparkling wine
Sparkling water (for virgin drinks)
Fruit Puree Add-Ins:
Passion fruit puree
Black cherry puree
Blueberry pomegranate puree
Blackberry puree
