After upgrading from a Mimosa to Bellini as your go-to brunch drink (nice move, by the way), you’ve started to tire of the fizzy, peachy drink. Don’t burn out on the classic brunchtail, instead, spread your drinking wings and fly to other equally peach pastures to find new, delicious drinks. Here are seven fantastic drinks to make at home if you know you love Bellinis.
If You Like Bellinis You’ll Love These Cocktails
Wonderfully refreshing and effervescent, this take on a Mojito is made with the usual white rum, mint, lime juice and soda water, but gets some fruitiness from fresh muddled peach. Think of it like a tall, minty, stronger Bellini.
When the mercury rises, a chilled glass of peach-spiked Prosecco just won’t cut it. Instead, blend up peach puree with vodka and frozen Prosecco ice cubes. For a show-stopping presentation, spoon the boozy sorbet into hollowed out peach halves.

Created by chef Antoine Westermann of New York’s Le Coq Rico, this tropical brunch drink is made with sparkling wine, passion fruit puree and thyme syrup. It’s slightly tangier and more herbaceous than a classic Bellini, which is just the thing to shake you out of your comfort zone.

Peach liqueur replaces the standard peach puree in this aperitif-inspired take on a Bellini. A splash of Aperol gives the drink color and some bittersweet flavors. Don’t think you have to relegate this drink to being a brunchtime tipple only, try it any time of day.
Made with peach nectar, sparkling wine and vodka, these sweet, jiggly Jello Shots are too delicious for their own good. Pace yourself, there’s a good amount of booze in these snacks.
This tall, sophisticated drink is made with everyone’s favorite cult flavored sparkling water. Apricot La Croix shines in this simple Highball, which is spiked with old tom gin and cardamom bitters.

Somewhere between a Mimosa and a Fuzzy Navel, this tiki-ish drink is made with peach liqueur and orgeat, a creamy, almond milk syrup. A few dashes of orange bitters give the drink a citrusy bite and depth.
