But let’s get back to basics with this non-alcoholic peach Bellini, complete with our favorite sparkling non-alcoholic wine.
The History of the Bellini
Most cocktail historians (it’s a thing!) place the Bellini’s origins in the 1930s-1940s. Giuseppe Cipriani combined a peach purée with prosecco at Harry’s Bar, the bar he owned in Venice, Italy.
It became known as the Bellini Cipriani because the colors reminded him of a painting by Giovanni Bellini.
Thanks to its fizz and relatively low alcohol content, the Bellini cocktail’s place in the bubbly brunch hall of fame was set.
Bellinis are a popular cocktail at brunches and baby showers. Make this non-alcoholic version so your expectant friend can enjoy one, too. Our recipe is safe for pregnant moms and anyone who wants to attend a sober party.
Look to balance sweet with savory with these food pairings:
- Serving this one up with brunch? We love the idea of peach flavors playing off a plate of chicken and waffles.
- Prefer finger food instead? Mini quiches or smoked salmon crostini sound divine paired with bubbles.
- Lean into the sweet. If your guest of honor loves sweets, buck the trend with a pancake bar. Banana, blueberry, and cinnamon-dusted flapjacks are crowd-pleasers.
Storing & Serving
Bellinis look best in champagne flutes, but if you don’t have the proper stemware, don’t stress. Serve this one fresh and chilled to keep the bubbles alive.
Once open, try to finish up your Surely non-alcoholic wine within 5 days. We don’t think you’ll have an issue with that. If you want to blend up extra peaches for breakfast smoothies, leave the Brut out of the second batch. The purée should keep for 2-3 days in the fridge.
Feel free to play with garnishes on this one. We love adding apple cider to fall Bellinis or a dash of cranberry to a holiday mocktail. Non-alcoholic drinks can be just as playful as conventional cocktails.
Non-Alcoholic Peach Bellini Recipe
Most of your prep time is spent blending things up for this virgin peach Bellini. Add a few minutes for slicing up the peaches if you choose to go fresh.

A natural sweetener instead of simple syrup is a healthier option for this peach Bellini mocktail. You’ll get a natural dose of calcium, vitamin C, and potassium from the peaches in this recipe. Bump up the vitamin C with a dash of lemon juice if you want it a little tart.
