A Bellini mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 fresh peach juice (or puree)
  • Prosecco (dry sparkling wine)
  • fruit to match the juice (optional garnish)

Mixing Method: Build

  1. Build in a chilled champagne flute.
  2. Add the fresh peach juice.
  3. Top slowly with sparkling wine.
  4. Serve straight up without a garnish.

Mixology Notes:

The original Bellini recipe calls for Prosecco, a tart, dry, white sparkling wine from Italy, with little character, that’s low in alcohol content. For this drink, you can substitute any dry sparkling wine, because it’s hard to distinguish a wine’s origin, when diluted and flavored with fruit juice. You can even use left over Champagne if you happen to have some.

Cocktail Variations:

Puccini – Use fresh mandarin orange juice instead of peach.

Rossini – Use fresh strawberry juice or puree, instead of peach.

Tintoretto – Use fresh pomegranate juice instead of peach.
