These crispy onion rings from cookbook author Colman Andrews are an indulgent accompaniment to any burger. Though Prosecco adds unique fizz, any sparkling wine, beer, or water can be used to lighten the batter. Peanut oil is ideal for fast-frying tasks because it has a high smoke point, meaning it won’t scorch at the hot temperature needed to make these rings puff and crisp.
