Happy Tuesday!

I’m getting back to normality after having Nathan’s family over for the past week. We had so much fun, cooking and sightseeing and the weather was just perfect. At the weekend we made our own pizzas in a wood fired oven and it was the best fun ever!

Pizza is just SO much better when it’s cooked in a wood fired oven and they cook in around 30 seconds, it’s amazing! You can see a couple photos I took on Instagram.

We enjoyed a couple of yummy cocktails over the last week, we made the obligatory Aperol Spritz (these are the bright orange drinks you see everyone drinking) and these Strawberry Bellini with lime!

I love a simple cocktail especially one that contains plenty bubbles and these strawberry bellini are just perfect. It’s refreshing and packed full of juicy, fruity flavour you can’t not enjoy sipping on this on a warm Spring evening.

This Bellini recipe couldn’t be simpler. I blitz up some fresh strawberries with some light brown caster sugar and lime juice until completely smooth.

It’s then passed through a fine sieve to get rid of as many seeds as possible. A couple managed to get through into my glass but I didn’t mind it was still delicious.

Then I spoon around 1 1/2 tbsp of the strawberry pureé into the bottom of champagne flutes and top up very carefully with prosecco. Because of the acidity in the fruit, it causes the prosecco to froth and bubble much more than normal so you need to pour the prosecco very slowly to stop them overflowing.

All that’s left to do now is sit back and sip on your strawberry bellini whilst enjoying some nibbles such as this whipped ricotta dip with thyme roasted tomatoes, perfect!
