ROMEO & JULY ENJOYMENT - BUY BELLINI!
One of the most famous bars in Europe has to be Harry’s Bar located at San Marco 1323, just around the corner from St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) in Venice, Italy. This famous Hemingway hangout was founded in 1931 by Guiseppe Cipriani and his American business partner, Harry Pickering. It attracts tourists like iron filings to magnet. Why the attraction to Harry’s? It’s the world famous cocktail made with sparkling wine and peach nectar called Bellini. The cost of being able to tell one’s friends, relatives and colleagues “we went to Harry’s Bar in Venice and had a Bellini,” is €17 ($25) for a 200 ml glass. You want a Bellini at Harry’s, be prepared to pay for the experience. A cruise to Venice will cost a few grand per person. An economy fare flight during peak season will probably set you back at least $1,400. Solution: Romeo Peach Bellini! Taking its name from that famous Shakespearian character from the neighboring city of Verona, this Bellini will set you back a mere $10.95 for a 750 ml bottle. It comes with a beautiful peach coloured label, frosted glass bottle and an easy-to-open and close screw cap closure. A seductive bouquet of peach aromas wafts from the bottle. The taste is pleasantly sweet with beautiful balance of peach flavours yet the alcohol clocks in at a mere 5.9%. Great as a refreshing drink on a hot day in July, August, or any other month.
