Honeydew melon bellini

A refreshing take on the classic drink, this honeydew melon bellini is made with honeydew melon, lime juice, and sparkling wine.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Refrigeration time 2 hours
Servings 10 cocktails

Ingredients

  • 5 cups of diced honeydew melon about ½ of a large melon
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Sugar to taste based on the sweetness of the melon
  • 1 bottle of chilled prosecco champagne, cava or other sparkling wine

Instructions

  • Combine the diced honeydew melon with the lime juice and sugar in a blender and blend until you obtain a smooth puree.
  • Strain the puree, chill for at least 30 minutes or until ready to use. A couple hours is ideal. For an extra smooth puree that is less likely to make the drinks overflow when mixed with the sparkling wine, strain the honeydew puree a second time after chilling. Then chill again for a few hours. It makes a significant difference.
  • Pour the honeydew melon puree into champagne flutes, no more than half full.
  • Add the prosecco or other sparkling wine, pouring it gently to avoid making a bubbly mess.
  • Stir lightly and serve immediately.

Notes

For a non-alcoholic version you can replace the prosecco with sparkling cider, sparkling lemonade or even sparkling water for a lighter bubbly drink.
