Bellini's and Blue Horizons - Drinks!

Although I've been to a few places in Florida, the only time I've been to Miami is on our honeymoon when we flew into Miami to board a ship for a cruise to Mexico and the Bahamas. Apparently there is a restaurant named "Touch" and a hotel/restaurant named "The Tides" that each have a pretty good drink called the Blue Horizon and the Bellini.

For some reason the color 'blue' always make a summer drink look inviting... LOL. For that reason, when I saw this drink I apparently copied it down into one of my notebooks as I found it there this weekend. And the other? Well, anything that has sparkling wine and peach in it sounds light and crisp and perfect to serve on a warm summer day or evening!
