The Perfect Non-Alcoholic Bellini + Garnishes for All Seasons

The Perfect Non-Alcoholic Bellini + Garnishes for All Seasons


3 minute read

The non-alcoholic Bellini cocktail rivals virgin mimosas as the brunch drink of choice when you’re seeking something fresh and alcohol-free. 😋

What’s in a non-alcoholic bellini?

A traditional peach Bellini recipe features:

  • Prosecco (as a nod to its Italian roots)
  • Peach purée
  • Fresh peach slices

Some recipes call for peach nectar or other fruit juices, like white grape juice or apple cider, but those extras veer from the original.

The non-alcoholic version subs the prosecco for alcohol-free bubbly. We love sparkling rosé wine for this one, but a non-alcoholic sparkling champagne or sparkling wine would work just fine. 

If you’re used to your Bellini with schnapps, seek out non-alcoholic spirits as an alternative.

A History of the Bellini, Including the Bellini Cipriani

What does “Bellini” mean? The word Bellini means a sparkling cocktail with peach juice, but its origins date back to the 1930s (or maybe the 1940s).

Bellini lore credits Giuseppe Cipriani, the owner of Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy, for creating the Bellini. Cipriani liked naming cocktails after famous painters. When he saw the color of his concoction for the first time, it reminded him of a painting by Giovanni Bellini. 

A traditional Bellini Cipriani today is simple: a blend of white peaches and prosecco.

What is the difference between a Bellini and a peach mimosa? The difference between a Bellini and a peach mimosa is the sweetness. Bellinis are typically made with a purée instead of juice, making them sweeter and thicker.

Some occasions are just made for a non-alcoholic bellini.

We don’t think you need a special occasion for this delicious mocktail, but Bellinis tend to shine at baby showers, Mother’s Day brunches, and summertime soirées. 

The virgin peach Bellini is especially popular during peach season, although frozen peaches are fine to use, too.

Non-Alcoholic Bellini Recipe

This non-alcoholic drink requires very little prep time to make from scratch. 

If you want a classic peach Bellini mocktail, sub the raspberries for peaches. Both give you a dose of vitamin C and calcium.

Creative Bellini Garnish Ideas

We’ve already mixed it up here by leaving out the peaches, so it’s perfectly fine to make this mocktail your own with creative garnishes. 

Here are a few ideas to garnish your non-acoholic bellini:

  • Sub in strawberries or blueberries, especially when they’re fresh.
  • Drop in a cranberry or two and call it a holiday Bellini. 
  • A sprig of rosemary or edible rose petals make this one photo-ready.
