Recipe For a Bellini - Beijing Bellini

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Beijing Bellini
Andrew Krauss, China 1 Antique Restaurant and Lounge
Lychee liquor replaces traditional Peach Schnapps in this different recipe for a bellini. This recipe comes from mixologist Andrew Krauss at New York City's China 1 Antique Restaurant and Lounge.


  • 3 parts Champagne or Dry Italian Prosecco*
  • 1 part Lychee wine or Lychee Liquor**
  • 1 Lychee nut dropped to bottom of glass***


Served in a tall champagne flute glass.

*We prefer our prosecco, which is crisp and dry.

**Lychee wine or liquor can be found in your local Chinatown Liquor store; the liquor gives it a stronger flavor and punch. There's now an American lychee liquor brand called "Soho" which may be easier to find.

**You can also blend the lychee nut in a processor in its own sweet juice. Peeled, canned lychee nuts are available in a lot of grocery stores.

Olympics opening fun!, Member bfraiv

We served Beijing Bellinis at a dinner party for ten celebrating the opening of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. We had all visited China together in 2006. The drink was very smooth, unusual, and a great hit. Thanks for the recipe. I'd definitely make it again.
