Piazza Food Bites: Summer is Made for Bellini

Share

Piazza Italian Market wine advocate, Jenn Martella, doesn’t hesitate when she responds that the perfect summer drink is the famed Bellini cocktail.

According to Jenn, the Prosecco and peach juice concoction, invented around 1934 at Harry’s Bar in Venice by bartender Giuseppe Cipriani, hits all the right notes on hot summer evenings. While not difficult to make, the Bellini depends heavily on the best ingredients, which includes Piazza’s exclusive “Baby” Prosecco.

In our Spy chat, Jenn talks about the drink’s origin and other uses for the delightful peach juice that make summertime sunsets perfect on the Eastern Shore.
