The Bellini, our favorite brunch cocktail, was our inspiration for this pie. Echoing the flavors of this fruity and fizzy standard of midday drinking, the layers of peach chiffon and Champagne mousse are a perfect treat to cap any meal of the day! The recipe uses just over 1 cup of Champagne, and what you do with the rest is none of our business.
