Take full advantage of peach season with this simple and delicious cocktail recipe!
Peach Bellini Martini
A Bellini is a cocktail traditionally made with Prosecco and peach purée or nectar. It originated in Venice, Italy.
It was created in the mid-1900s by Giuseppe Cipriani. He was the founder of Harry’s Bar and created the cocktail during the local four-month-long peach season. He mixed one part ripe white peach purée with two parts prosecco to create the light pink drink. The beautiful hue reminded him of a color he’d seen in a painting by Giovanni Bellini, and the Bellini cocktail was born.
I varied from the traditional with my Bellini and used vodka instead of Prosecco. Feel free to substitute Prosecco or champagne, if you want.
Additionally, because it wasn’t peach season when I made this, I used peach nectar instead of peach puree. To make peach puree, purée the fruit with a little lemon juice then strain. Refrigerate it until you’re ready to use. Or, you can freeze the mixture for later.
This bubbly booze is light and refreshing. It’s great for brunch.
Peach Bellini Martini is another restaurant re-make from South restaurant in Tupelo. It’s my favorite cocktail that they serve, actually, it comes in probably the top 3 of my favorite cocktails of all time! Yep, it’s that good. (Update 4/9/19, South is no longer open.)
This is a picture of (one) of the martinis I had at South….because that’s what I do, take pics of my food and drinks!
