The cocktail Bellini was invented in 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, head bartender of Harry’s Bar in Venice who named the cocktail after the Venetian painter because of its pink color that reminded him of the color present in a painting by Giovanni Bellini (the Giambellino). The drink became a seasonal specialty at Harry’s Bar in Venice, a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, Gianni Agnelli, Sinclair Lewis and Orson Welles. It later became very popular at Harry’s Bar in New York as well. After a French entrepreneur set up a trade route to transport white peach pulp between the two locations, the cocktail became a classic, now popular in bars around the world.
