What could be better than a refreshing and fruity cocktail? The Malibu Rum Raspberry Bellini is easy to make, looks gorgeous, and tastes delicious. This summery cocktail combines the sweetness of ripe raspberries with the tropical flavor of Malibu rum for a refreshing drink that will cool you down on a hot day. Let’s look at how to make this delicious concoction.
Ingredients You’ll Need
To make your Malibu Rum Raspberry Bellini, you will need the following ingredients:
- -1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries
-2 tablespoons of sugar
-3 ounces of chilled prosecco or sparkling wine
- -1 1/2 ounce of Malibu rum (or other coconut flavored rum)
The first step is to prepare the raspberry puree. Put the raspberries and sugar into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the puree through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing it lightly with a spoon to get all the liquid out. Discard the solids in the sieve. Fill four glasses halfway with ice cubes and divide the raspberry puree evenly among them. Top up each glass with prosecco or sparkling wine and then pour in one ounce of Malibu rum for each glass. Give each glass a gentle stir with a spoon and enjoy!
Tips & Variations
This recipe can be easily altered to suit your taste preferences. Replace some or all of the raspberry puree with cranberry juice for an extra tart flavor or substitute simple syrup for sugar if desired. If you don’t have any prosecco or sparkling wine on hand, use pineapple juice instead for an equally fruity alternative. For an added kick, replace some or all of the ice cubes with crushed ice.
