Deliciously Fresh Strawberry Bellini

Fresh Strawberry Bellini

Sunday brunch, holiday brunch, a birthday brunch, or just because you want to: this Strawberry Bellini is a fresh (and refreshing) alternative to the well-known Mimosa.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Mimosa’s, however, it’s good to have some variation on the theme.  These Strawberry Bellinis are made from fresh strawberries.  Nothing beats fresh.
