Chicken and Sons, a restaurant in Sydney, Australia, now serves their bacon cheeseburgers with an extra special topping unlike anything we’ve seen before. A literal shot of bourbon. That’s right; the “Bourbon Burgel” not only satisfies hunger, but also quenches thirst. Allow us to explain further.
The entree’s name is a combination of its three main components: bourbon, burger and a bagel. Yes, this burger comes served on a sesame seed bagel instead of a bun. An angus beef patty, american cheese, bourbon-glazed bacon, barbecue sauce, pickles, jalapeños and special sauce are sandwiched between the toasty slices. If that list of burger toppings doesn’t make you hungry, I don’t know what will.
And we can’t forget about the most unique part of this creation – the alcohol. The hole in the middle of the bagel provides the perfect spot for the shot of bourbon to rest comfortably.
The ingredients combine for a gluttonous bite sure to make your tastebuds explode with happiness. The burgel also comes with beer-battered fries and extra bacon. Because when is adding extra bacon ever a bad idea?
So, how do you tackle such a beast of a burger? Chicken and Sons recommends first taking the shot. Then, chase your bourbon with one of the crispy pieces of bacon. Next, take on the cheesy, meaty goodness that is the burgel. It’s best to eat it in a circle (so that the bagel doesn’t fall apart).
This mouthwatering masterpiece currently costs $22 and is taking the internet by storm. All in favor of the burgel making its way to the United States, say “I”!
