Bellini Recipe

Bellini Recipe. Created in 1948 by Harry Cipriani at his bar in Venice, Italy, this sophisticated drink was named for the 15th century Venetian artist Jacopo Bellini, a painter Cipriani much admired. Apparently, the wonderful faint pink hue of the Bellini reminded him of a similar shade in one of the artists paintings. The components are fairly simple but when combined, they make an intricate, stylish drink.
