How To Make: The Perfect Bellini

Invented between 1934 and 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of Harry’s Bar in Venice, the Bellini is a luxurious and refreshing cocktail that has swiftly become a year-round favourite. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just feeling a little bit fancy, in our opinion the Bellini is a winning cocktail!
