The classic peach Bellini was created by Giuseppe Cipriani, a bartender at Harry’s Bar in Venice.

In 1948, this unique concoction of white peach nectar and northern Italy’s own sparkling prosecco wine was named the “Bellini” in honor of artist Giovanni Bellini.

If you spend anytime in Italy sitting at an outdoor cafe sipping a peach Bellini is quite a delightful way to spend an afternoon. 

One of my favorite memories from my Italy adventure was just watching the world go by with a cocktail and a great view. My advice, go in the shoulder season when it’s easier to find a seat and the heat isn’t oppressive. Add a little nibble to enjoy while indulging in Bellinis.

The classic Bellini cocktail is a study in simplicity. It calls for just 2 ingredients: fresh white peaches and chilled prosecco wine. Over time, countless variations have emerged, including some with peach schnapps, French Champagne or raspberry liqueur.

This version of peach Bellini is close to the original, but uses fresh or frozen yellow peaches rather than white.
