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.
