I’d probably double this – maybe even triple it to be honest – if I were having dinner for eight people, but that may be because I have friends who drink a lot. Nevertheless, I just think it’s more helpful to give the recipe like this, so you can see what the ratio of fruit to wine is at its most simple. Anyway, I don’t think this sits well, so even if I were intending to double the amounts, I’d rather make a single batch up twice, than pour it and let it stand and separate in the pitcher. As I said, I now order large pouches of white peach pulp, but if you’re lucky and think you can get hold of white peaches that have managed to become everything they should be, then by all means do the right, real thing.
Pour the Bellini immediately into your glasses before the mixture separates, If you find it easier, mix each glass separately: for one generous glass of Bellini you will need ¼ cup of peach purèe and ¾ cup of Prosecco.
