Frozen Peach Bellini
A delicious frozen peach cocktail recipe using a quick and easy homemade peach sorbet topped with your favorite champagne or prosecco.
Making refreshing frozen fruit-based cocktails is always a special treat. While I enjoy these all year round they are especially delicious during the summer on a hot day.
I have a special place in my heart for these mini frozen watermelon Pina Coladas, but given its peach season, I knew I needed to recreate a classic peach bellini recipe by creating a frozen peach puree sorbet paired with sweet sparkling wine.
Trust me, if you love traditional bellinis, you will love this recipe! Get this simple recipe and all the details for making this elegant and refreshing bellini cocktail below.

Frozen Peach Bellini Ingredients:
Here is what you will need to make the frozen peach bellini cocktail-
- Frozen Peach Slices: You can also use canned or fresh peaches if that is what you have access to but frozen work best.
- Granulated Sugar: This will be made into simple syrup and blended into the peaches. You can sub with allulose (or my keto simple syrup) to make this recipe with less sugar if desired.
- Water: Used to make the simple syrup mixture.
- Lime Juice: A little acidity helps balance out the peach nectar flavor from being too overpowering.
- Brut Champagne or Prosecco: Use whatever style of sparkling wine you prefer best.
- Garnish: Add fresh basil or mint to the cocktail.
In order to make a frozen bellini, you need to create the frozen peach sorbet first. This is only four ingredients and is quick and simple.
- Begin by bringing the water to a boil over high heat. Add in the sugar and allow it to fully dissolve.
- Remove the simple syrup from the heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.
- In a blender pitcher, combine the peach slices and lime juice together. Pour the simple syrup over the mixture and blend until thick and smooth.
- Pour the contents of the pitcher into a glass dish, cover tightly, and freeze for 6- 8 hours or overnight.
Making The Cocktail:
The cocktail (if it can fully be called that) is easy to prepare. Grab a coupe glass (champagne glasses work but I prefer these over a flute because it’s easier for this drink).
Use an ice cream scooper and place a small scoop of the sorbet into each glass. Fill glasses with the champagne (3 oz. or so) and let the sorbet melt slightly.
Garnish the cocktail with some fresh basil or fresh mint if desired.
Other Helpful Tips:
- Chill your coupe glasses in the freezer prior to serving your cocktails.
- Remove the sorbet 10 minutes before serving so it’s easier to scoop.
- If you prefer an even stronger peach flavor you can add an ounce of peach schnapps too.
- Want to make this non-alcoholic? Try adding a splash of flavored sparkling water instead of the champagne and enjoy.
What To Serve With Frozen Bellinis:
Can’t drink on an empty stomach! A peach bellini is the perfect brunch cocktail. I love pairing these with delicious smoked cod or these easy salmon cakes.
I also love them with classic eggs and these crispy herb roasted potatoes too.
