History of the Peach Bellini Cocktail Recipe
Wondering about the history of your frozen peach Bellini? This cocktail dates back to the middle of last century. The first Bellini recipe was created sometime between 1934 and 1948. Its creator was Giuseppe Cipriani, who founded Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy.
The drink was named the Bellini because it was a special pink color. The color remind him of a saint’s toga in a painting from the 1400s by Giovanni Bellini, an artist from Venice. The original recipe had a little cherry juice or raspberry juice added for a pink hue.
Harry’s bar introduced the Bellini as a seasonal cocktail. It became popular in New York soon after that. When fresh white peach puree was imported to both locations, the Bellini could be served year round. Today the Cipriani family still produce a Bellini base for making this signature cocktail.
The Classic Bellini Recipe
Pureed white peaches and prosecco (a sparkling white wine from Italy) are the key ingredients in peach Bellini. Peaches marinated in wine are an Italian favourite, so a Bellini is the cocktail version of this Italian tradition. This recipe with peach juice is a great version to try this summer.
Other Bellini Variations
Since white peaches aren’t always easy to find (and the same can be said for prosecco) there are other belli variations. A Puccini swaps the peach puree for mandarin juice, while a Tintoretto uses pomegranate juice. A Rossini is made with strawberry puree.
The Bellini is an IBA Official Cocktail. Peach nectar or yellow peaches would work rather than the sometimes unavailable white peaches. Some people even use peach schnapps instead of the peach puree.
Champagne could be used instead of prosecco but it tends to have a bolder flavour than prosecco which overwhelms the delicate peach taste in the drink. Sparkling juice or seltzer could be used for a non-alcoholic version.
There are similar cocktails to the Bellini in other countries, including the Adalor cocktail from Cuba, made with fresh peaches and champagne.
