Bellini recipe

The Bellini is a relatively new drink and was invented in the 1940s at Harry's Bar in Venice. The bartender, Giuseppe Cipriani, invented the drink and named it after the Italian painter Giovanni Bellini. Inspired by the color of a dress a customer was wearing, Cipriani decided to create a drink that matched the color of the dress. He mixed peach puree and Prosecco and thereby created the Bellini. The drink quickly became popular and has since become one of the most iconic Italian cocktails in the world.


  • 10cl champagne
