About

Cocktails don’t come much more classic than the Bellini. The original recipe dates back to the 1930s, when Giuseppe Cipriani - a man obsessed with peaches and the owner of the famous Harry’s Bar off the Grand Canal of Venice - invented it. The drink took pride of place when the Cipriani family opened up Harry Cipriani restaurant in New York in 1985, and America – and the rest of the world's - long love affair with the Bellini properly started from here.
