Well, here's one easy way to liven up your breakfast: Eat a bagel made with fireball whiskey.
Proving the name "everything bagel" isn't quite accurate, you can now eat a bagel made with Fireball Whiskey. Just head to Freehold, NJ, where The Bagel Nook has fused breakfast and drinks in what they call the Fireball Bagel.
The latest creation from The Bagel Nook's innovative owner Alex Berkowitz, the Fireball Bagel is definitely not watering anything down. Delish's dive into the recipe reveals that the spicy spirit is incorporated into the bagel not once, but twice. First, some Fireball Whiskey is poured into the dough, imparting the cinnamon whiskey's kick; then, Berkowitz reduces more Fireball into a glaze by heating it in a skillet (removing the alcohol in the process) and coats the finished bagel.
If adding the Fireball Whiskey isn't enough flavor for you, The Bagel Nook recommends topping the Fireball Bagel with their equally unusual-sounding apple pie cream cheese. And if that's somehow still not enough, here are five more of the strangest bagels you can find:
Another Bagel Nook creation, the Oreo Overload brings classic cookies and cream flavor to bagels, with a swirl, Oreo cream cheese, and actual Oreos inside.
2. Twinkie Bagel
Available at Williamsburg bagel shop The Bagel Store, the Twinkie bagel combines what Serious Eats describes as "snack cake"-like interior with a crackly sweet exterior.

I saw this nice #colorful surprise on my desk when I got to work. #Cereal + #bagel = a complete #breakfast! 😄 This #luckycharms bagel with #fruitypebbles #creamcheese wasn't as sweet as you'd think it'd be! I definitely want to try the other options @bagelsrussi #morethanbirdsandlilies . . . . . . #bagels #brunch #cerealbagels #statenisland #bagelsrus #saturday #weekend #weekendvibes #시리얼 #베이글 #tastetherainbow #rainbow #아침
Yes, there's more than one kind. Staten Island shop Bagels R Us offers sweet bagels that use cereals like most do seeds, encrusting them with Lucky Charms, Fruity Pebbles, and even Cookie Crisp.
Yet another barely-believable bagel from Bagel Nook, this could be both the cheesiest and spiciest bagel ever, especially combined with its accompanying ghost chili cream cheese.
5. Rainbow Bagels
Compared to the wild concoctions above, the classic rainbow bagel may seem tame. The process of making them, however, is anything but, requiring some serious dough-working skills.
