New Year’s Eve Raspberry Bellini

Makes about 6 drinks

  • 1 bottle of your favorite champagne/sparkling wine or even seltzer for non alcoholic (chilled/approx. 750 ml)
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 3 cups frozen raspberries

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, add raspberries and honey and heat over medium heat.  Cook until the berries breakdown (about 5 minutes) while stirring frequently.
  2. After they are done cooking, add to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Using a strainer, strain out the seeds and let cool for 20 minutes in fridge.
  3. Using a champagne flute, add about 1 tbsp of raspberry puree and top with champagne/sparkling wine or seltzer. Give a little stir and enjoy.
