September 02, 2014 // Franchising.com // GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - This fall, the south is in the house at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin) with a new milkshake and burger sure to satisfy a guest's sweet (and savory) tooth! Beginning now through Nov. 2, guests 21-and-over can enjoy the new Beam®-N-Bacon Boozy Shake made with Jim Beam® Maple Bourbon, caramel and vanilla soft serve blended to perfection and topped with bacon bits and a strip of candied bacon. This one-of-a-kind shake pairs perfectly with the Southern Charm Burger™, the newest addition to Red Robin's Finest™ premium burger line served with a side of Southern hospitality.
"The growing popularity of bourbon-infused menu items inspired us to create the Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake by re-mixing a classic vanilla milkshake with the unexpected flavors of bourbon, maple and candied bacon, further raising the bar on our adult mixology," said Donna Ruch, Red Robin's master mixologist. "This milkshake perfectly captures the rich flavors of fall to offer a unique cocktail experience - with a bit of Red Robin charm."
Inspired by Red Robin's 2014 South Beach Wine and Food Festival Golden Robin award winner from Florida International University, The Southern Charm Burger features a brown sugar-glazed half-pound Black Angus beef patty, candied bacon, house-made honey BBQ sauce, extra-sharp Cheddar, seared red onions, lettuce and mayo served on a toasted ciabatta bun.
"The candied bacon on the Southern Charm Burger is sure to sizzle our guests' taste buds, offering the ultimate burger experience for bacon lovers this fall," said Denny Marie Post, Red Robin's senior vice president and chief marketing officer. "We continue to challenge ourselves with cutting-edge culinary innovation that pushes flavor boundaries to elevate our premium burger platform."
Additional flavorful fall menu items available through Nov. 2 include:
