Bellini is a cornerstone of the history of cocktails, one of the most refined, stylish and nifty drinks, although the recipe is very simple: mix some peach nectar with a good sparkling wine like Spumante or Champagne and you can sip a bit of heaven.

The recipe is simple, ok, but ingenious: Spumante’s qualities like structure, minerality and rocky freshness, find balance with the sumptuous flavor of the peaches: pure genius.

But beware, the secret for making a perfect Bellini are peaches, which have to be white, ripe, but above all crushed into a fine sieve to obtain peach nectar pure as the wings of an angel.

Do not even think for a second to use a trivial industrial juice, if you don’t have fresh peaches, try to find top-notch bottled peach nectar.

That’s it: just love and some great ingredients.

Historical note: the Bellini cocktail was born in Venice, 1948, on the occasion of a major exhibition of the famous painter Battista Bellini, by the brilliant mind of the immortal Giuseppe Cipriani, at the time owner and head barman of Harry’s Bar.

Keep this in mind if you want to prepare a bowl or pools of Bellini for brunches, happy hours and parties, where Bellini shines.
