Frozen Peach Bellini

Tropical Drink:  Frozen Peach Bellini
A Peach Bellini cocktail is a mixture of sparkling wine such as Prosecco with peach purée or nectar.  The Peach Bellini is believed to have originated in Venice, Italy.

The Peach Bellini was invented sometime in the 1940’s by Giuseppe¬†Cipriani, founder of¬†Harry’s Bar¬†in Venice, Italy.¬† He named the drink the¬†Bellini¬†because its unique color reminded him of the toga of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini.

The drink started as a seasonal specialty at Harry’s Bar, a favorite haunt of¬†Ernest Hemingway,¬†Sinclair Lewis¬†and¬†Orson Welles. Later, it also became popular at the Harry’s New York bar.
