What is a Bellini?

This is a classic cocktail invented in Venice, Italy back in the 1940’s-ish. It consists of just 2 ingredients: peach puree and prosecco, an Italian sparkling white wine similar to champagne.

Why this is the best Bellini recipe

  1. Tastes amazing: It’s nice and peach-y, with that delightful fizz of prosecco!
  2. Few ingredients: Just 2 in fact!
  3. Easy to make: Legit takes 2 minutes.
  4. Special: Any time you’re talking bubbly it means a celebration!

What does a peach Bellini taste like?

This drink is very peach-forward, with a bubbly, fizzy quality from the prosecco. Simple but so, so good!


Ingredients for making Bellinis, with text labels.

Peach puree: So here’s the big secret- I don’t actually make the peach puree. Although you can, it’s not hard! I have instructions for that below but the truth is, I just use baby food! It’s great because it’s shelf stable at room temperature (as long as it’s unopened) so you can just keep it in the cupboard for whenever that Bellini craving strikes!

Sparkling wine: Traditionally, Bellinis are made with prosecco, which is a white sparkling wine from Italy. It costs a lot less than French champagne, but it’s very similar. You could also use a domestic sparkling wine if you like.

Special equipment

  • Spoon: For placing the peach puree in the bottom of the glass and for stirring everything up.
  • Champagne flutes: These make your Bellini experience feel even more special!

How to make a peach Bellini

This is so simple you probably don’t even need these instructions!

Step 1: Peach

Spoon a little peach puree into the bottom of your champagne glasses.

You can use as much or as little as you like, depending upon how peachy and sweet you like your Bellini drink. I usually go with a tablespoon or two for each glass.

Step 2: Prosecco

Top it off with bubbly.

Be careful it bubbles up a ton and can spill over easily!

Give it a quick stir and it’s ready to enjoy!

How to serve Bellinis

This drink is perfect for a special occasion such as Mother’s Day, a baby shower or bridal shower, Easter, or New Years.

It can also work really well for a special brunch.

Enjoy it ice cold!

Add a wedge of fresh peach as a pretty garnish, or float in a few raspberries to make it extra special.

Expert tips

Other peach shortcuts: You could also try adding a spoonful of peach jam in place of the baby food. It will be a little sweeter but also really good! A splash of peach liqueur would also work really well.

Make your own peach puree: Peel fresh peaches, remove the pits, and puree them in a blender or food processor for a fresher take! White peaches would be especially authentic! Or use thawed frozen peach slices.

Make a big batch: If you’re entertaining a big crowd, you might want to mix up a whole pitcher at a time. This recipe scales really easily! Just use around 1/2 to 1 cup of peach puree for every 750 ml bottle of prosecco. Keep it chilled in the fridge; your guests can pour for themselves!

Or, just one at a time: Making Bellinis fresh only takes a minute or two, so why not mix each one up fresh so it’s nice and fizzy? Look for the little 4-packs of mini bottles at your Wine and Spirits shop.
