Yes, it’s what the legend says. Bellini was invented at Harry’s Bar in Venice sometime in the 30ies/40ies by Giuseppe Cipriani. Bellini is a cocktail which is made of Prosecco or Champagne, mixed with white peach purée. The unique rosé color of the drink apparently reminded Giuseppe of the toga of a saint in a painting by the Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini, so he named the cocktail after him. Usually bar tenders prepare the drink in champagne glasses, but Harry’s bar serves their signature drink in small water glasses! The place is packed with lots of Italians and tourists and is just an “it place”, since it was opened in 1931. A definite must incl. sipping a Bellini, when you are in Venice…
