SunGold Kiwifruit Bellini

Light and subtle, with a beautiful color, this is a twist on the traditional bellini.


  • 2 Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit, peeled
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp Cointreau, or other orange flavored liqueur
  • 1 bottle (750ml) of chilled white sparkling wine or champagne


  1. Slice kiwifruit into halves and spoon fruit out into a blender.
  2. Add the sugar and the Cointreau and purée, taking care not to crush the kiwifruit seeds.
  3. Pass mixture through a fine sieve to remove the seeds.
  4. Pour the clear liquid into four champagne flutes.
  5. Pour 2 tbsp of the sparkling wine into each flute and gently stir to combine; then, gently pour on more wine to fill each glass.
