Minty strawbellini: a perfect summer cocktail

As my friends know, inventing cocktails is one of my favourite pastimes. I don’t do complicated though. I tend to take a well-known cocktail and rework it with some local, seasonal ingredients. The “Bellini” cocktail was invented at Harry’s Bar in Venice and consists simply of fresh peach purée and local prosecco,

My version – the ” Minty Strawbellini” – is more English. It includes fresh British strawberries and mint, mushed into a purée along with some good quality honey, and topped with pink cava or prosecco.
