Bellini Party - April 8, 2011
Buona Serra! Tonight some friends are coming over for cocktails. Did you know that Venice is the birthplace of the Bellini Cocktail? It was first served at Harry's Bar here in Venice in 1943. It was created to honor Giovani Bellini, the painter, by Giuseppi Cipriani.
Try one..cin cin!
My guests have all arrived except Roz. Mi scusi, I see her peeking around the front door now.
Finally the party can begin.
2/3 cup white peach puree
1 teaspoon raspberry puree
l bottle chilled Italian Prosecco
Serve in tall champagne flutes.
