I received Powell & Mahoney Peach Bellini in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
I love drinks with a fruity taste and my new favorite might be Powell & Mahoney’s Peach Bellini. It is fragrant, delicious and so versatile!
Before my bottle of Powell & Mahoney Peach Bellini arrived, I had never heard of a peach bellini. Turns out the Bellini came to be sometime between 1934 and 1948 and credit goes to the founder of Harry’s bar in Venice, Italy, Giuseppe Cipriani. It’s name inspired by the pink color that reminded Cipriani of a saint in a 15th century painting by Venetian artist Giovanni Belinni.
The Peach Bellini has some amazing fans that include Ernest Hemingway and Sinclair Lewis.
Originally the peach bellini was a seasonal drink, but a Frenchman decided to shop fresh white peach puree, making it a year-round favorite.
A true peach bellini involves pureed peaches and prosecc0, a sparkling wine. If you’re seeking an original, add a bit of raspberry or cherry juice. Mahoney & Powell make it easy, bottling delciousness ready to pour and start creating.
My kiddos loved it mixed with sprite and ginger ale, I loved mine mixed with Vodka. Heck! We even tried it straight from the bottle–it was YUM!
On Thanksgiving morning, toast the balloons while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with the Classic Bellini — breakfast cocktail staples as longstanding as the parade itself.
Glassware: Champagne flute.
4 oz. chilled Prosecco
1 oz. Powell & Mahoney Peach Bellini.
Garnish: Slice of white peach.
For the Thanksgiving feast, give thanks for Powell & Mahoney’s mixers for giving you one less thing to prepare. No need to go harvest all the individual ingredients for a delicious and festive cocktail — all you have to do to make Powell & Mahoney’s Pumpkin Smash is combine 1.5 oz. bourbon or rye whiskey, 1.5 oz. Powell & Mahoney Lemon Sour and 1 tsp. canned pumpkin (Libby’s or Dole) in a shaker and strain over ice in an old-fashioned style glass. Then just dust with ground cinnamon and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
After slaving away in the kitchen for days and surviving the crazy sales of Black Friday, you deserve to put your feet up and rejuvenate yourself. Powell & Mahoney’s mixers are perfect for entertaining or flying solo!
