Spiced plum Bellini


6 Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Red Plums, stoned and roughly chopped
30g Waitrose Light Brown Muscovado Sugar
3cm piece root ginger, thickly sliced
6 peppercorns
100ml Chase English Potato

1 Place the chopped plums, sugar, ginger, peppercorns and 200ml water in a small saucepan and simmer gently for 15 minutes until thickened and pulpy.

2 Pour the mixture into a fine sieve and press gently to extract  the juice. Discard the pulp and allow the juice to cool completely. Stir in the vodka and chill until ready to serve.

3 Pour the plum vodka mix into 6 Champagne coupes (or flutes) and top up with chilled Prosecco. Serve swiftly.
