GREENWICH, Conn. -- Planning to surprise Mom with breakfast in bed? Or a homemade brunch. Balducci's in Greenwich offers the following Bellini recipes:

Blood Orange Bellini

Serves: 8


  • 1 ½ cups fresh blood orange juice
  • 1 bottle Balducci’s Prosecco
  • 3 tablespoons orange liquor


  • In a large pitcher, combine the blood orange juice, Prosecco and orange liquor. Mix thoroughly, then divide evenly into 8 champagne flutes.
  • Garnish with a slice of fresh blood orange (For an extra chill, place glasses in the freezer 30 minutes before preparation).

Apricot & Ginger Bellini

Serves 6


  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 fresh apricots, pitted and chopped
  • 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1 bottle Balducci’s Prosecco


  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water, apricots and ginger. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and allow the mixture to simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, cover with a lid, then steep for 15 minutes. Then, strain the apricots and ginger and allow the syrup to cool completely.
  • To make the Bellini: Add the Prosecco to a champagne flute, filling halfway, then top off with the apricot-ginger syrup. Garnish with a slice of fresh apricot
