Sweet Sip

It’s a Bellini sans champagne. It’s a martini without the vermouth. So what exactly is it? Cafe Italia has fused two worlds once again with its chilled-out peach Bellini martini. The drink—orange juice, vodka, and peach schnapps—is perfect when paired with the grilled Italian cheese platter or the fresh wilted baby spinach salad with calamari. It’s also sweet enough for dessert. Sip the tantalizing ’tini at the restaurant’s newest locale in Plano. 4615 W. Lovers Ln. 214-357-4200; 5809 Preston Rd., Plano. 469-467-0444. —Ryan Mendenhall
