Mango Lime Bellini – An Easy Brunch Cocktail Recipe

Today I’m sharing my recipe for Mango Lime Bellinis. There are also links to some wonderful brunch recipes from my blogger friends in today’s post.

Mango Lime Bellini - An Easy Brunch Cocktail Recipe

If you’re hosting a brunch, you need a good brunch cocktail recipe. No. You need a great brunch cocktail recipe.

Or maybe even several great drink recipes!

I love the idea of doing a brunch cocktail bar. Sarcastic Cook has a FANTASTIC Bloody Mary bar for you to try out, complete with candied bacon stir sticks!

Or you could do a Bellini bar. So simple. Just have different kinds of fruit purées in bowls. Peach is classic, of course. You can also do blueberry, strawberry or raspberry (all strained before serving). And you can have a Mango Lime mixture like this one.

Having Prosecco to add to the drinks is a given.

Prosecco is the Italian version of Champagne and it is the classic sparkling wine used in Bellinis. Thankfully, it’s inexpensive and you can easily get a good bottle for under $15 (and often a lot less). But you can use Cava (the Spanish version of Champagne) or any other sparkling wine that you like. I like to stick with dry bubblies.

But I won’t judge if you go for the sweet stuff.

The great thing about doing it as a bar is that people who don’t want alcohol can mix their chosen purée with sparkling water or even with apple or orange juice. (If you’re going to offer this brunch cocktail to non-drinkers, use water in the mango-lime purée mixture instead of sparkling wine).

Getting the fruit from a mango can be tricky if you don’t know how. Watch my video tutorial to learn how to cut a mango.

Now for the delicious brunch cocktail recipe! Yum!

Mango Lime Bellini Cocktail

This Bellini is just a subtle twist on the original, but the fruity acid from the lime takes it to a whole new place.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of diced mango (fresh or frozen that has been defrosted)
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • a bottle of Prosecco or other sparkling wine

Directions:

  1. Put the mango into a blender with the lime juice. Blend until it is a smooth purée. If it is having trouble blending, add 2-4 tablespoons of the Prosecco or of water. Note that some blenders will never get rid of some of the bigger pieces. You can put a bowl under a colander with big holes and strain your purée through there to remove larger chunks.
  2. Measure about 2 tablespoons of the purée into each wine flute. Carefully top each glass with Prosecco. It will bubble and fizz and may even overflow so be ready to slurp! Yum!

    Bellinis are wonderfully refreshing! Going to have to try Mango-Lime, since I’ve only ever had Peach!

    Yum, those look sooo good! I think I’ve only had mango bellinis once before, but they were infinitely better than the peach ones (according to my own mango-biased opinion… :) Thanks for this reminder to make them and the perfect idea to add lime!

    Mango and lime sound like a great combination! I’ll always take a champagne cocktail at brunch!

    I like your addition of lime to the bellini! Thanks for all your hard work this week. I think Brunch Week is a huge success.
