The Bellini is the perfect cocktail for any occasion, whether it’s brunch with friends, a welcome drink at your next party, or an aperitif for an elegant dinner. The particularly nice thing about it: it is super tasty and really easy to prepare.

This cocktail is an excellent alternative for the well-known Mimosa, which is better known in this country as “sparkling wine with OJ” and is served as a welcome drink at almost every event. So if you want to surprise your guests, offer them a Bellini.

For the Bellini

  • 100 ml prosecco*
  • 50 ml white peach puree (fresh)

  • Champagne glass
  • Bar spoon


Pour the cold peach puree into a pre-chilled champagne glass.
Top with ice-cold Prosecco and stir gently.
Garnish with a slice of peach. Your original Bellini Cocktail is ready!

Stir carefully so that as much carbon dioxide as possible remains in the cocktail. If you can’t get white peaches, you can of course resort to yellow peaches

The history of the Bellini cocktail

The Bellini was created in the 1940s in Venice, Italy. More specifically, in Harry’s Bar and looks quite similar to the well-known Mimosa. Instead of fresh orange juice, however, Bellini’s uses pureed white peaches. As a true Italian, there is of course only one correct answer to the question of the right sparkling wine for the cocktail: Prosecco!

When Giuseppe Cipriani invented the drink in the first half of the 19th century, its pink color reminded him of a painting by Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini and named it after him.

At the time, the original Bellini consisted of two parts dry Prosecco* and one part white peach puree, along with a dash of raspberry juice or cherry juice, which gave it a particularly appealing coloration.
