Twisted Bellini

The end of Summer means saying goodbye to lots of things…especially when you live in Indiana. This place is still growing on me but I still miss just about everything the south has to offer, particularly sunshine. While I am looking forward to Fall, it makes me anxious because I know as soon as Fall is finished Winter is coming in like a bat out of hell–except the bat has the nerve to come without any warmth!

At any rate, as Summer eases out, the peaches will too. So now is the time to do everything you ever imagined with fresh peaches before your only option is the canned variety. Here’s a deliciously, decadent twist on the traditional Bellini, and it’s perfect for Labor Day Cookouts.
