Notes

Substitutes:

  • Prosecco Substitute: Opt for sparkling water or a non-alcoholic sparkling wine.
  • Proceed As Usual: Omit the peach liqueur and follow the original steps to enjoy a non-alcoholic Peach Bellini.

Creating it Vegan:

  • Peach Puree: Ensure that your peach puree doesn't contain any animal-derived additives.
  • Peach liqueur: This kind of liqueur is usually vegan but always check the label for certified products.
  • Prosecco: Choose a vegan-friendly Prosecco or sparkling wine. Many wines use animal-derived fining agents, so check the label or brand's website for vegan options.

What is a Peach Bellini?

A Peach Bellini is a cocktail that combines peach flavor with Prosecco. Originating in Venice, this drink has become a brunch and summer favorite worldwide. The Peach Bellini gets its name from the Italian painter Giovanni Bellini, but you can be something other than an art connoisseur to appreciate its simple elegance.

What is the difference between a Mimosa and a Peach Bellini?

A Mimosa traditionally combines orange juice with Champagne, while a Peach Bellini pairs peach puree with Prosecco. The Mimosa offers a citrusy flavor profile, contrasting with the Peach Bellini’s sweeter, fruit-forward taste. Additionally, Mimosas often appear on brunch menus and morning celebrations, whereas Peach Bellinis enjoy broader popularity, showing up at brunch and afternoon and evening events. In terms of alcohol, both drinks are relatively light, but the specific type of sparkling wine used can vary, with Mimosas often featuring Champagne and Peach Bellinis sticking to Prosecco. Finally, while both drinks are served in a Champagne flute, a Mimosa usually includes a citrus garnish like an orange slice, and a Peach Bellini might feature a fresh peach slice for garnish.

Pre-mixed Peach Bellini

Pre-mixed Peach Bellinis are a solid option if you’re short on time or want a hassle-free experience. Brands like Canella and Miami Cocktail Co. offer canned versions that capture the essence of the classic drink. Canella’s Bellini comes straight from Italy and blends peach juice with Prosecco for an authentic taste. Miami Cocktail Co. offers an organic, low-calorie option free from added sugars and artificial ingredients. But I’d go with Canella if I had to pick a favorite. It strikes the right balance between sweetness and effervescence, and the fact that it’s made in Italy gives it that traditional touch. 

Peach Bellini Syrup

Peach Bellini syrup is a game-changer for making quick and consistent Bellinis. For balance, it’s a concentrated blend of peach flavor, sugar, and sometimes a touch of citric acid. Brands like Torani and Monin are top picks, offering syrups that mix seamlessly with Prosecco or sparkling wine. Torani’s version is vibrant and fruity, while Monin adds a touch of elegance with natural flavors. 

Peach Bellini with Vodka

If you want to amp up your Peach Bellini, consider adding vodka. Vodka gives it an extra kick without altering the taste. This combo turns your standard Bellini into a more potent, flavor-packed experience. Brands like Tito’s or Grey Goose complements without overpowering. Mix each splash into your peach puree before topping off with Prosecco.

Frozen Peach Bellini

A Frozen Peach Bellini is the ultimate summer refresher. Think of it as a slushy for adults. You’ll blend frozen peaches, a splash of simple syrup, and Prosecco right in your blender. The frozen peaches act as the ice, making the drink thick without watering it down. Prosecco keeps the bubbly character intact, even in a frozen state. The result is a frosty, fruity beverage perfect for sipping poolside or at a summer barbecue. 

Variations

Intrigued by unique styles? We’re delighted to share a few of our best choices:

  • Strawberry Bellini: This offers a refreshing berry twist, replacing the peach puree with strawberry puree. The strawberry lends a vibrant, sweet, and slightly tangy flavor. I really enjoy the way the strawberries provide a burst of freshness; it’s like a taste of summer in a glass.
  • Raspberry Bellini: This introduces a tart and fruity element, perfect for summer gatherings, by incorporating raspberry puree. The raspberries add a delightful sharpness that contrasts beautifully with the bubbly Prosecco. I appreciate the tartness of the raspberries; it adds a playful and zesty character that I find irresistibly refreshing.
  • Mango Bellini: This brings a tropical flair, using mango puree instead of peach. The mango’s rich, sweet, and creamy texture creates a luxurious and exotic experience. The tropical sweetness of mango is something I adore; it reminds me of sunny beach vacations.
  • Blueberry Bellini: This features blueberry puree, contributing a deep, rich color and a slightly tart kick. The blueberries offer a unique balance of sweetness and acidity, making it both intriguing and delightful.
  • Pineapple Bellini: This introduces a zesty, tropical note with pineapple puree, pairing wonderfully with the bubbly Prosecco. The pineapple adds a vibrant, tangy flavor that’s both refreshing and invigorating.
  • Lychee Bellini: This adds an exotic touch with its unique, sweet lychee puree. The lychee’s distinctively sweet and floral taste provides a sophisticated and unusual twist, making it a memorable choice.
  • Cherry Bellini: This creates a beverage that’s ideal for a romantic evening, featuring cherry puree for a sweet and slightly tart taste. The cherries bring a deep, rich flavor that’s both indulgent and comforting, perfect for special moments.

History and Origins

The Peach Bellini originated in Venice, Italy, and owes its creation to Giuseppe Cipriani, the founder of the famous Harry’s Bar. Cipriani concocted the drink sometime in the late 1930s or early 1940s. He named the beverage after Giovanni Bellini, a 15th-century Venetian painter because the cocktail’s pink hue reminded him of a color often used in Bellini’s paintings.
