if don't any alcahol in it u can use non-sweetend iced tea instead of champagne and it isn't bitter at all because of the flavor!

Ahhhhh. You just can't beat a good Peach Bellini! I also have a Vita Mix so I did not need to cook the mixture. The ratio of ingredients were right on to produce a WONDERFUL drink. I used Prosecco champagne. This is the good life! :-)

I had frozen peaches over the summer so I used those. Added them to my vita mix along with the sugar and lemon juice. Blended till totally smooth and icy. Place 1 tblespoon onto each glass and topped slowly with champagne. No need to cook with the vita mix!
