Cheers to the best bellinis in Montreal

Ah, the bellini. First invented in Venice during the Second World War, this cocktail is traditionally prepared with white peach purée and Prosecco sparkling wine. In the last 70 or so years, however, the bellini has evolved and adapted into countless tasty variations. So raise your glass and celebrate the ever-lasting bellini with some of the best cocktail makers in Montreal.

Taverne Gaspar

Plumb in the heart of Montreal’s Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough, Typhoon Lounge offers a seasonal blackberry bellini – say that 10 times fast! But if you ask nicely, they’ll make one for you almost anytime.

La Maison Saint-Paul

343 Rue Saint-Paul E, Montréal, QC H2Y 1H3

La Champagnerie is best known for, what else, their selection of champagne. So it’s no surprise they make a pretty smashing bellini. The Bellini parfait à la pêche is made with sultana raisin aromatized sugar, white peach purée and, of course, bubbles.

Maison Boulud

Maison Boulud is housed inside the posh Ritz-Carlton Montreal and serves up a five-star bellini of the highest order – Cava, Alain Milliat’s white peach nectar and prosecco. Delish! Expect to pay a higher price for a cocktail at Maison Boulud, but it will be a drink like no other, and totally worth the extra few bucks.

Bevo bar + Pizzeria

410, rue Saint-Vincent, Montréal, QC H2Y 3A5

It’s no surprise an Italian restaurant, complete with wood-fired oven for their authentic Neapolitan pizza, would concoct an absolutely delicious bellini. Prepared with peach schnapps, prosecco and fresh peaches, you’ll have a hard time just ordering one.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
