There is no better way to celebrate National Prosecco Day on August 13 than with a glass of prosecco, unless you turn that glass into a donut. Yes, it has happened. Someone created a prosecco donut. Imagine: Happy hour and breakfast rolled into one! That’s one deliciously bubbly Sunday morning!
“For the past two years we have been perfecting our recipes, craft and vision,” said The Doughnut Project owners Leslie Polizzotto and Troy Neal. “We are very excited to partner with Ruffino to create the Prosecco Doughnut for National Prosecco Day.”
The dough used to make the donuts have been fortified with Ruffino Prosecco and are then fried to golden perfection. Once cooled, they are glazed and decorated with edible gold leaf and pink glitter. Available at the bakery’s West Village outpost, each donut will run you $4.25 each, about half the cost of a bottle of prosecco.
This isn’t the first time The Doughnut Project has gotten creative with their products. They created the everything donut to mimic the everything bagel, and also were the masterminds behind the bone marrow donut, a pastry stuffed with bone marrow chocolate pastry cream and topped with a bright clementine glaze.
We’re gonna stick with prosecco because what else could make a morning pop?
