Georgia Peach Bellini Cupcakes

As many of you may be aware Georgia is known as the Peach State. For the many years I have resided in Georgia one thing I do notice the peaches here has a superior flavor and appearance.

Since its summer I wanted to create a special treat that involved a cocktail taste with peaches of course. What’s better than a peach Bellini cocktail in a cupcake?

If you ever had a peach Bellini cocktail it is a light and a light mixture of champagne and peach puree. I am a fan of mixed cocktails and this cupcake has that cocktail and moist feeling to it with champagne, peach schnapps and fresh peaches.

No need to go to the bar to get that cocktail go ahead in the kitchen and make this wonderful delight treat. Thanks for stopping by Never Dessert You.
