The Peach Bellini cocktail was created in the late 1930s by Giuseppe Cipriani, the founder of the famous Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy. The cocktail was named after the painter Giovanni Bellini, as its color reminded Cipriani of the pink hue in one of Bellini's paintings. The Peach Bellini has since become a popular choice for brunches and celebrations.

  • Originally made with fresh white peaches and Prosecco
  • Became popular in the United States in the 1960s
  • Often served at special occasions and brunches

How Peach Bellini Tastes?

The Peach Bellini has a refreshing, fruity, and slightly sweet taste. The combination of peach puree and Prosecco creates a light, bubbly, and smooth texture.

Interesting facts about Peach Bellini

  • The original recipe called for white peaches, but yellow peaches or peach nectar can also be used
  • Prosecco is a sparkling Italian wine, but Champagne or other sparkling wines can be substituted
  • The Bellini is part of the 'sparkling wine cocktail' family, which also includes the Mimosa and the Kir Royale


Peach Puree

  • Why 2 oz?: The peach puree gives the Bellini its signature fruity flavor. 2 oz is just the right amount to balance the prosecco's bubbles without overpowering the cocktail.
  • Without It: No peach puree means no Peach Bellini! You'd have a plain prosecco, and that's not nearly as fun.
  • Affects & Alternatives: Swap in nectarine puree for a tarter taste, or mango for a tropical twist.

  • Why 4 oz?: Prosecco provides the effervescence and lightness to the drink. 4 oz ensures your Bellini is more bubbly than it is thick and maintains a classy, light mouthfeel.
  • Without It: Omitting Prosecco makes it just peach juice - not a celebration in a glass!
  • Affects & Alternatives: A drier Champagne could substitute for a less sweet, more toasty Bellini.

Optional Peach Slice

  • Garnish: A peach slice isn't just eye-candy, it also hints at the flavor within.
  • Without It: The drink is still delicious but lacks the visual appeal and the fun of a fresh fruity nibble.

Perfect Pairings

  • Shrimp Cocktail: The crisp, peachy notes cut through the richness of the shrimp.
  • Grilled Calamari: A char-grilled calamari with a zesty dressing can be elevated by the bubbly Prosecco in the Bellini.


  • Eggs Benedict: The creaminess of the Hollandaise sauce and the Bellini offer a contrast in textures and flavors.
