A blend of fresh cranberries and vanilla bean, pureed and then paired with chilled prosecco. This sparkling bellini is simply served in champagne coupes and garnished with fresh rosemary and cranberries for holiday cheer!



3.5 cups fresh cranberries

2 cups water

Seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean

1/3 cup raw sugar

Chilled Prosecco

Rosemary and fresh cranberries for garnish


Pour the water, sugar, cranberries and vanilla bean into a pot. 

Heat over medium, allowing the cranberries to pop and break down (about 5 minutes.)

Once the mixture begins to break down, use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree the hot cranberries until smooth. 

Pour the pureed mixture through a sieve to remove the pulp. Allow to cool.

Once cooled, pour the cranberry vanilla mixture into the bottom of each champagne coupe (about 1/4 of the way full.)cranberry_cocktails_recipes_bellini_christmas_recipes_beverages_bellini

Garnish with rosemary and cranberries.


Serve immediately.



Make puree 2 days in advance. Store in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to serve.
