The Italian peach Bellini recipe was invented in 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, the same Harry’s Bar chief bartender that invented the Rossini cocktail.

He was inspired by a Giovanni Bellini’s painting and by the pinkish color of the toga of a saint portrayed. Yes, pinkish, cause initially, the Bellini included a bit of raspberry juice, that you can add, of course.

  • 2 parts white peaches purée if you can find them, regular peaches if not - about a peach every two servings
  • 4 parts prosecco


  1. Peel and slice the peach. 

  2. Blend it until creamy and pour it into a shaker or big glass. 

  3. Add Prosecco, shake and serve.

Recipe Notes

Some filter the purée through a fine sieve, I don’t find it necessary.

Enjoy your Bellini cocktail while facing a beautiful Summer sunset!
