Plum Champagne Cocktail

In need, well maybe not need, but wanting an aperitif in a hurry, I remembered a lovely plum I had from Portobello yesterday and the plan was born.

Plums

Inspired by the Bellini, this is my version of a luscious Champagne cocktail.  Who needs a reason?

Serves 2-3

1 plum, stoned and peeled

6 mint leaves, plus more for garnish

powdered sugar, to taste (optional)

Champagne or Sparkling wine

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Puree plum and mint in a food processor.  Add powdered sugar to taste.

Plum Puree

Fill glass with Champagne or sparkling wine.   Gently add puree.  This order will help keep the sides of the glass free of the puree.  Garnish with mint leaves.  Enjoy and repeat!  Cheers.

For those wanting non-alcoholic, replace Champagne with lemonade or sparkling water.
