Bellini is an internationally well-known long drink cocktail that originated in Italy. It is a mixture of sparkling wine (Prosecco) and peach puree, and is one of Italy’s most popular cocktails.

According to Harry’s Bar in Venice, “A true Bellini is made with pureed white peaches and Italian sparkling wine. Over time the recipe has seen more than a few variations]

The Bellini was invented sometime between 1934 and 1948[ by Giuseppe Cipriani, head bartender at Harry’s Bar. Because of its unique pink color, which reminded Cipriani of a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini, he named the drink the Bellini. Here is my sweet twist on this favorite libation.


  • White peaches, unpeeled
  • Prosecco
  • Chilled 8-ounce glasses


  1. Remove the pits from the peaches and chop them into quarters. Puree in a blender or food processor until you have a smooth puree. Chill the puree in the freezer for about half an hour.
  2. For each drink, pour 1/4 cup of the peach puree into a glass and then add 2/3 cup of well chilled Prosecco. Stir well and serve immediately.
