BelliniBellini

Painted by Todd M. Casey.

The Bellini has a very interesting background. Giuseppe Cipriani in the mid 1900’s, the owner of Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy, created the drink. It received its name for its unique pink colors which resemble the togas worn by saints in paintings by Venetian artist, Giovanni Bellini from the 15th century. Made from pureed white peaches and Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine, the Bellini started as a seasonal favorite at Harry’s Bar and a noted favorite of Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis and Orson Welles. The popular drink later became a beloved cocktail at Harry’s New York location and later a staple at both bars after a Frenchman set up a business to ship fresh white peach puree to both locations. Served straight up in a Champagne flute, the Bellini is now a brunch must.
