Battle Bellini at Patio Bar

New England Challenge Signature Drink

Date: Thursday, September 17, 2020

Newport Polo's first Battle of the Sexes came in 1993, at a time when the Bellini cocktail was at the top of the charts in popularity.  The Battle Bellini will be making its resurgence this Saturday for the 4th duel between Newport Men and Newport Women, with a simple recipe of Peach Puree and Sparkling Wine to toast the age-old contention of the fitter sexes, and to the end of summer.  Make it a mocktail by substituting the sparkling wine with club soda or ginger ale.  Ready to be enjoyed at the Patio Bar from the time gates open at 2PM.

Battle Bellini is presented alongside a full menu of signature cocktails crafted by The Cocktail Guru, in addition to Stella Artois on tap and select imported & craft beers, boutique wines, premium spirits, unique soft drinks and Veuve Clicquot Champagne.  Full service is offered to patrons seated in the Pavilion, and carryout is available to attendees from Tailgates/Chalets and Picnic Patches.  The Patio Bar is located in the Davitt Pavilion at centerfield, by the Pro Shop.
