Listen up pancake lovers – if you want in on the trend sending the internet crazy we advise you ditch the sugar and lemon this year in favour of something a little stronger… Prosecco!
No, we’re not asking you to wash your pancakes down with a glass of fizz, we’re talking about actually mixing the two together to create a booze soaked batter, set to be filling up our news feeds and – if you’re adventurous enough – bellies, as of tomorrow!
The brave needn’t worry about pounding the streets in search of the perfect pancake – ‘Veeno’ have released their own take on what could become a brunch staple, so you can try your hand at creating the prosecco pancake from the comfort of your own home.
Not content with including fizz in the batter, the owners of the Italian wine cafe have even whipped up a prosecco syrup for those in need of an extra kick.
Nino Caruso, founder of Veeno Cafe, claimed he thought up the idea as he created a prosecco tasting menu to meet the “huge demand from customers wanting anything in prosecco form”.
And it’s not the first time that prosecco trends have hit headlines – last year Aldi’s prosecco flavoured tea was a sell out; something which occurred in close proximity to outcries that we were suffering a ‘national prosecco shortage’ due to increased demand.
If the fizz-fuelled pancake tastes as good as it sounds, we might witness another shortage in weeks to come. Our advice? Stock up now!
