Bellini Jam

This wonderfully refreshing Bellini jam combines the sweetness of peaches with the giggly swagger of champagne. When the ho-hums of January come knocking, can you think of a better way to perk yourself up than with summer fruit and a touch of booze? Like a fresh Bellini during a weekend brunch, these preserves smooth out the creases in life—only with no hangover.

I zip my peaches in the food processor for a smoother texture, but you can chop them coarsely if you prefer your jam a little chunkier. It may be redundant to eat this jam while drinking a Bellini, so feel free to pour yourself a morning mimosa instead. I won't judge you if you don't judge me.
