Yield: serves 4

Ingredients

  • Peanut oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 14 cups prosecco or other sparkling wine
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 large vidalia or other sweet onions, peeled

Instructions

  1. Pour oil into a wide deep pot to a depth of 2" and heat over medium-high heat until temperature reaches 365º on a candy thermometer.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together flour and prosecco in a large bowl until batter is smooth; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Slice onions into 1"-thick rounds, then separate into rings.
  4. Working in small batches, coat onion rings in batter, then use a fork to transfer rings one at a time to hot oil, and deep-fry, turning often, until golden and crisp, 2-3 minutes per batch.
  5. Transfer onion rings with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Season to taste with salt.
