Tropical Drink:  Frozen Peach Bellini
A Peach Bellini cocktail is a mixture of sparkling wine such as Prosecco with peach purée or nectar.  The Peach Bellini is believed to have originated in Venice, Italy.

The Peach Bellini was invented sometime in the 1940’s by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy.  He named the drink the Bellini because its unique color reminded him of the toga of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini.

The drink started as a seasonal specialty at Harry’s Bar, a favorite haunt of Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis and Orson Welles. Later, it also became popular at the Harry’s New York bar.
