Peach purée

1/2 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 to 3/4 lb. ripe white peaches
2 tsp. sugar

For Drinks

2 raspberries, if desired, for color.
1 bottle Prosecco sparkling wine, preferably Nino Franco


Put water and lemon juice in a bowl. Peel, pit, and slice the peaches. Immerse them in the acidulated water, so they don't discolor, and macerate for at least 10 minutes or up to 6 hours. Drain the peaches, reserving 2 to 3 tablespoons of the liquid. In a food processor or blender, purée the peaches with the sugar and reserved liquid. Use more sugar if peaches are tart. Bear in mind that this is not a sweet drink. If the peaches don't have pink veins (which lend a Bellini its rosy hue), add a few raspberries to the mixture before puréeing. Transfer mixture to a jar or bottle and chill thoroughly.

Pour cold peach purée into a pitcher. Add one bottle of chilled Prosecco sparkling wine and stir gently. Pour into glasses and drink at once.
