The clock will strike 12, it will be 2016, and we all know we’ll drink plenty. But why do we have to stop there? Carry on the drinking with these waffles, flavored with our favorite alcohol: Prosecco (it’s cheaper than champagne but still elegant, duh).
And if you struggle picking between a sweet and savory waffle, don’t worry, here are two ways to top these babies. Either top with Prosecco-cooked raspberries, or get fancy AF and make some Prosecco hollandaise for Eggs Benedict served on these badass waffles. Not only can you have a killer first brunch, you can also keep drinking.
