Blackberry Bellinis for a Celebratory #SundaySupper

Today we are being joined by Gallo Family Vineyards for a celebratory Sunday Supper. What are we celebrating?  Well, most of us are celebrating National Moscato Day which comes on May 9th! Gallo Family Vineyards not only has a great moscato – they have three of them! A classic White Moscato, ruby Red Moscato, and a blushing Pink Moscato.

As I mentioned, most of us are celebrating National Moscato Day.

But in my house today, we are also celebrating another special event.  Twenty-three years ago today, this photo was taken. Here we were in Georgia, having just been to the Justice of the Peace. My mother took this photo. The next day…we parted ways again. But that’s a whole ‘nother story.

So needless to say, celebrating National Moscato Day is the perfect opportunity to also celebrate our anniversary with a lovely cocktail.

To begin, thaw out 2 cups of frozen blackberries. Place them in your blender.

Strain the mixture through a sieve to get rid of the seeds.

Place about 2 tablespoons of the puree into a champagne flute.

Then pour in some lovely chilled Moscato. Today I am using Gallo Family Vineyard’s Pink Moscato.

Give it a little stir – I find that a chopstick works perfectly for this.

Top with a whole frozen blackberry.

    Happy anniversary! Perfect way to celebrate! Also I just got frozen blackberries from my CSA. Not my favorite frozen fruit since they are too tart but perfect for a cocktail!

    I just LOVE your wedding photo, Conni. Seeing how happy you both look makes me break out in the biggest smile. I think this cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate with your hubby. Happy Anniversary to you both!

    Conni, you had me at “bellini” – one of my favourite drinks! I love the photo of you and your husband. And once again, that video rocks. It was so cool seeing and hearing you tell the story of how you two met and got married. These photos are absolutely gorgeous – I love the vibrant colour of your drink!
