    Passion fruit Bellini cocktails

    Giuseppe Cipriani is credited with creating the classic Bellini in 1948 at his bar in Venice, Italy, where he combined peach purée and Prosecco into a cocktail. Its pink colour reminded him of the toga worn by a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini. This recipe swaps in passion fruit purée and rosé wine to boost the blush. 

    • Preparation time: Ready in 5 minutes
    • Total time: 5 minutes 5 minutes

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    1 passion fruit
    250ml chilled rosé Champagne or sparkling rosé wine
    2 tbsp orange liqueur eg Cointreau

    Method

    1. Halve the passion fruit and scoop the flesh and seeds into a small sieve or tea strainer. Press with the back of a spoon to extract the juice then place in the fridge along with 2 Champagne saucers or flutes and leave to chill.
