Cocktail Legend Bellini

1931-1948 | Venice, Italy In addition to its location on the Grand Canal and cohort of famous visitors, Venice's Harry's Bar (don't confuse it with the Parisian institution of the same name) can brag about the fact that two great inventions first saw the light of day there: the dish that we would come to know as carpaccio, and the Bellini. Giuseppe Cipriani, who opened Harry's Bar in 1931 and named it in honor of an American, Harry Pickering, who sponsored the place, was a man of the arts like any other Venetian. For his turn, he enjoyed painting, which gave him the inspiration for his gastronomic inventions. A similar story took place with this cocktail: it's not clear when Cipriani first offered his guests an exquisite drink featuring sparkling wine and peach purée, but the name came to mind right after visiting an exhibit of one of the Renaissance masters, Giovanni Bellini, whose warm color palette harmonized with the cocktail's peachy color.

Thus Harry's Bar became the center of gravity for the rich and famous: over the years, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Aristotle Onassis, Woody Allen, and royals from King Alfonso XIII of Spain to Prince Charles. THe Bellini quickly gained popularity. First, it was made exclusively with seasonal white peaches from May to September, but later on, year-round peach purée was added. In 1985, the son of the founder, Arrigo Cipriani opened his own bar in New York on Fifth Avenue and made the Bellini the establishment's signature cocktail. With time, this modest family business grew into a national empire, containing restaurants, hotels, concert halls, and factories producing everything from pasta to coffee to a bottled version of the famous cocktail.
