How to make a Bellini

Peach and sparkling wine

Fresh and fizzy

An easy tipple that tastes fresh and light, perfect to enjoy outdoors in the long summer evenings

A gentle aperitif cocktail that’s palatable throughout the day and into the evening, the Bellini is an Italian classic, invented in Harry’s Bar, Venice, in 1945.

Some modern recipes call for a peach liqueur or even vodka but traditionally it’s a simple mixture of peach puree and fizz. If white peaches are in season making your own puree is fairly simple, the fruit needs to be peeled, halved and the stones removed before being blended until smooth.

Make it at home:

50ml white peach puree   |   Prosecco to top   |   Fresh peach slice
