How I make my famous brunch Bellini




I like to make it simple so I use Cipriani's peach puree and I mix it with SOFIA's Blanc de Blancs Cali bubblies. It's refreshing, tasty and absolutely delicious.

A little bit about BELLINIS:

A Bellini is a long drink cocktail that originated in Venice. It is a mixture of sparkling wine or prosecco and peach purée, often served at celebrations. It is one of Italy's most popular cocktails.
The Bellini was invented sometime between 1934 and 1948 by Giuseppe's Cipriani, founder of Harry's bar in Venice. Because of its unique pink color, which reminded Cipriani of the color of the toga of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini, he named the drink the 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 bar's New York counterpart. After an entrepreneurial Frenchman set up a business to ship fresh white peach pureé to both locations, it was a year round favorite.
