The Ingredients

100 ml Prosecco, 50 ml Peach puree, 4 dashes Peach Bitters

How To make a Bellini

Add 4 dashes of peach bitters into chilled champagne flute. Add peach puree and top up with Prosecco.

Social and Cocktail says:

The Peach and Prosecco are a match made in heaven, creating the perfect cocktail for any special occasion. Other sparkling wines are commonly used in place of Prosecco, though richly flavored French champagne does not pair well with the light, fruity flavour of the Bellini. For a non-alcoholic version, sparkling juice or seltzer is used in place of the wine.

Did You Know?

The Bellini was invented c.1940 by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy. Because of its unique pink colour, which reminded Cipriani of the colour of the toga of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini, he named the drink the 'Bellini'. The original recipe was made with a bit of raspberry or cherry juice to give the drink a pink glow.
The Maitre D at the Manhatten restaurant "Pastel", in Bret East Ellis "American Psycho",brings 3 rounds of complimentary Bellinis, none of which the men drink.
