The Bellini, one of Italy’s most famous cocktails, is made with sparkling white wine (Prosecco) and pureed white peaches (succo di pesca).

The well-loved drink was invented in Italy in 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, head bartender and owner of perhaps the most famous bar in the world: Harry’s Bar, in Venice. (Carpaccio was also invented there by Cipriani.) The shade of pink of the Bellini reminded Cipriani of the color of a saint’s toga in a painting by Giovanni Bellini, hence the name, “Bellini.”

The drink became a seasonal specialty at Harry’s Bar, an institution since 1931 and a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis, Alfred Hitchcock, and Orson Welles. It later became popular in New York, after a French entrepreneur established a means for transporting white peach puree between Venice and New York.
