Peach  Cardamom Bellini

Author Notes:

This recipe is an attempt to replicate and improve upon a cocktail that we enjoyed recently at one of our favorite restaurants: Oleana in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The goal was to enjoy the magical relationship of cardamom and peaches. The cardamom simple syrup can be used as a springboard for other beverages along with poached fruit desserts.


Makes: 1 cocktail


Cardamom Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup whole cardamom pods- slightly crushed
  • 2 cups granulated sugar

For each cocktail

  • 1/2 ounce cardamom simple syrup
  • 1 ounce peach nectar- Looza brand is wonderful
  • 8 ounces Prosecco
  • thinly sliced peaches- for garnish
In This Recipe


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the water and cardamom pods. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add the sugar and return to a boil. Lower heat & simmer for 5 minutes.
