Think of it as a Shake Shack shot.
Today, Shake Shack is launching its Burger Bourbon Bacon Cheddar and Chicken Bourbon Bacon Cheddar nationwide. Both are slipped with bacon jam made with Maker’s Mark whisky. The sweet and savory condiment mixes applewood smoked bacon for six hours with vanilla, woody and caramel notes from Maker’s Mark.
The jam adds the finishing touch to a burger consisting of Angus beef, white cheddar, crispy shallots, house sauce and a grilled potato bun, and to a sandwich consisting of chicken breast, white cheddar, pickles and toast.
Renowned restaurateur Danny Meyer opened the first Shake Shack in 2004, and the partnership with the renowned Maker’s Mark (and the resulting bacon jam) celebrates Meyer’s foodie roots, Shake Shack officials said.
What else is shaking today at the Shack? Two new milkshakes are also debuting across the country.
The Chocolate Churro Shake includes frozen churro custard topped with whipped cream, cinnamon waffle crumbs and a spicy dark chocolate sauce. The Oreo Funnel Cake Shake brings together rhymes, Oreo cookies, funnel cake crunch, and vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate whipped cream.
Starting today, people can order the new items on the Shake Shack App To pick up. In-store sales of the items begin May 6, including all four Las Vegas restaurants at The District at Green Valley Ranch, downtown Summerlin, North Premium Outlets and on the Strip in New York-New York.
