Pour purées according to taste, about one-third full into 6 beautiful champagne flutes and fill slowly with sparkling wine. Serve immediately with 1 long cocktail spoon.

Notes

One great Prosecco for making Bellinis is the Bellenda Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene from Italy's Veneto region. It's more elegant than most Proseccos with lively herb, lime and mineral notes. Also look for aromatic, fruity Prosecco from Zardetto.
