The Bellini

by Nannette Eaton on October 6, 2013

The mimosa is a brunch staple, but for the Wine Harlots, we think mimosa’s suck. Too acidic, and quite frankly, a waste of sparkling wine. But Bellini’s are a whole different story. The Bellini was created by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of the legendary Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy, and the drink was popularized by Ernest Hemingway (but really, wasn’t every alcoholic beverage promoted by Papa?) The drink is a blend of peach pureé and prosecco and it’s utterly delicious. At Wine Harlots World Headquarters we use Ceres Peach Nectar, because we are basically lazy, and not really morning-people, so this is the best we can do before noon. The Mason Shaker folks, however, are over-achievers. Their take on the Bellini takes the drink up a notch with the addition of fresh peaches and a splash of vodka. Clearly, the place for brunch isn’t at Wine Harlots, but with the boys of Mason Shaker.
