Harry's Bar...

So today, while watching 7th Heaven, I was inspired to look up the recipe for a champagne cocktail called "Bellini".  Bellinis are basically champagne or prosecco and pureed peaches.  They were invented at Harry's Bar in Venice.

As it turns out, there are also Harry's Bars in Florence and Rome.  Neither of these other Harry's Bars are related to the one in Venice, but maybe it would be fun to drop by for a drink...  Maybe we could have a Bellini pub crawl or something...  Or maybe not.  Italians are snappy dressers and I might be disappointing...  And these bars might be too touristy.

On the other hand, I read that Harry's Bar in Florence makes a very dry martini.  Bill is a fan of dry martinis...  

We'll see...


  1. "Harry's Bar" sounds to me mostly like n Irish pub in Queens.

  2. I'm kind of sad that the Venice bar is part of a chain now.
