The Bellini got its start in 1948 in Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy, when drink connoisseur Giuseppi Cipriani looked for a way to highlight the delicious taste and smell of Italy's bountiful fresh peaches. The result was this simple yet elegant drink that combines peach puree with sparkling white wine to create a memorable libation. Fix yourself a Bellini and taste for yourself why this drink has since earned a place among the pantheon of classic cocktails.
