The summer of 2005 was devoted to being able to make a great Bellini. My request was to make something close to the Bellini of a local restaurant and the real thing.

5 large ripe peaches, peeled and chopped
1 cup water
1 cup white wine
1 cup sugar
Presecco or champagne

Heat one cup water, one cup wine with one cup sugar over medium high heat until the sugar is nicely dissolved and the mixture is just about at the boiling stage.

Peel peaches, slice and place in the hot water/wine/sugar mixture. Cook for five (5) minutes over medium heat.

Pour the peach/sugar syrup mixture into a food processor and blend.

Pour into a baking dish, lasagne pan is fine and place in the freezer. From time to time you can scrape a fork along the top or you can do that at the end.

Scrape up some of the frozen peach, place in a large martini glass, pour a little Sangria for a nice rich red color along the sides and then finish the glass by adding cold Prescco or champagne.
