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
Peach puree
Kirsch
Peach eau de vie
Black raspberry liqueur, such as Chambord
Passion fruit liqueur
Fresh blackberries
Fresh cherries
Pomegranate seeds
Passion fruit seeds
