Colic Cocktail

Since today’s theme seems to be food, I thought it would be such a missed opportunity to neglect potent potables. Below you will find the recipe for one of my favorite cocktails, the Bellini, which is sure to alleviate stress, improve meditation, and prevent insanity (your children may actually benefit with the last one too).


Gourmet Version: (2 servings in flutes)

2 ounces of peach nectar
3 ounces of chilled, dry fake champagne (the actual tends to be too rich)
1 ounce of peach schnapps
1 tsp of lemon juice
Crushed ice

1) Mix together all of the ingredients together, except the champagne (otherwise, hello bubbles)
2) Add the ice for a quick chill
3) Finally, add champagne

Quickee version: (To be used in an emergency- colic, teething, double ear infections)

1 part peach schnapps
3 parts champagne

Mix, guzzle, repeat.

** Drinking while pregnant or nursing is not recommended.
