Bourbon glaze is becoming a pretty common ingredient in swanky burgers, but what about a burger that’s so saturated with booze, you have to be 21 to order it?The Spiked Bulleit Bourbon Burger served at the St. Louis locations of Bar Louie has got people talking.
It’s topped with cream cheese, Cheddar, bacon and crispy onion rings, and a slather of barbecue jam soaked in bourbon. The catch is that the bourbon is added after the jam has cooled, so the alcohol doesn’t burn off and gives you a nice buzz with your beefy bun.
You have to have a valid 21-and-over license to order this bad boy, and according to the owners, chowing down on the burger is equivalent to doing a shot, but it will probably take a little longer for the booze to kick in.
Starting this week, the burger is available at any one of Bar Louie’s four locations for just $12.49, according to the Riverfront Times, or you can get a special deal on Tuesdays.
