Ginny’s Boozy Bellini

Ginny's Boozy Bellini

This classic, classy cocktail, one of Italy’s most famous, the Bellini, has been kicked up a notch with the addition of Ginny’s Gin. Invented by Giuseppe Cipriani, owner of Harry’s Bar in Venice, the Bellini has been a seasonal specialty there since 1948 and a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles. With fresh, fragrant seasonal peaches, you definitely need this one in your cocktail repertoire this summer.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 2 oz Ginny’s Gin
  • 1 oz fresh peach puree*
  • Chilled Champagne, Prosecco, Cava or sparkling wine to top
  • Fresh peach slice for garnish

*To make the peach puree enough for 6 Bellinis

  • 4 peaches (white, pitted and peeled)
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon or to taste of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon or to taste of simple syrup

DIRECTIONS

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Can be strained to make it more like juice. Keep in the fridge for up to a week in a well-sealed container, but better used immediately ; )

TO MAKE THE COCKTAIL

Shake gin & peach puree with ice, pour into a Gabriel-Glas stemless glass & top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a peach slice. Your Bellini will only be as good as your peaches, so chose those that are perfectly ripe.
