Peach Bellini Recipe
A juicy and refreshing cocktail recipe perfect for mimosa fans, this easy peach bellini cocktail is one of my personal favorites for serving at brunch, especially when there’s a celebration at hand!
What is a peach bellini? Bellinis are a classic Italian cocktail made with Prosecco, white peach puree and a touch of raspberry or cherry added just for color. Invented in Venice by Giuseppe Cipriani, the owner of Harry’s Bar, they were named after a Venetian artist, Giovanni Bellini.
Since white peaches aren’t available where I live, I use regular peaches and opt for a touch of raspberry rum since the peaches give the cocktail a golden glow all of their own. You can still add the raspberries if you prefer.
I’ve made this cocktail with both homemade peach juice and store-bought peach nectar – both are delicious, so choose whichever works better for your hosting style. (I describe how to make homemade peach juice in the notes section of the recipe card below.)
Tips for Perfect Bellinis:
- Make sure your Prosecco and peach nectar are super cold
- Serve mimosas in narrow glasses to keep the cocktail bubbly (wider-mouthed glasses allow the carbonation to escape faster)
- Do not stir your mimosa – add the Prosecco, then the peach nectar, and the cocktail will do your mixing for you
- Use a good quality, dry Prosecco to avoid the bellini from becoming too sweet
Tip: I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. You can order the Prosecco and Raspberry Rum needed for this recipe from them.
