Semifreddo Bellini


Semifreddo means "half cold" in Italian. Here it refers to the slushy mixture that brings texture and flavor to this classic Champagne cocktail.

    This looks delicious! I am making brunch for guests for the first time on Sunday and will try out this recipe! The menu I'm trying to figure out now but it will be something like: 1. appetizers--deviled eggs, smoked salmon with dill and caviar, various cheeses 2. biscuits and homemade jam 3. fruit salad 4. sea bass filet with asparagus and maybe a quiche 5. a dessert -- not sure yet :) any thoughts or ideas on my menu?
