The new Midnight Moon Moonshine burger features the chain’s signature fresh baked buns, a charbroiled, 100 percent Black Angus beef patty along with the sweet burn of Midnight Moon Moonshine glaze, pepper-Jack cheese, crispy garlic-pepper onion straws and thick-cut, Applewood-smoked bacon.

The new charbroiled Midnight Moonshine Burger is available now in various patty sizes starting at $4.39, and can be ordered as a combo meal with fries and a drink starting at $6.89, however, prices may vary. The premium version is made with our 1/3 pound, 100 percent Black Angus beef patty.

“Branded, alcohol-flavored menu items have been popular in sit-down restaurants for a number of years now but Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s were the first to bring them to the fast food industry,” said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer for Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants.

“We loved the sweet burn you get when you put a moonshine-flavored glaze on a burger, and the addition of crispy garlic-pepper onion straws, spicy pepper-Jack cheese, Applewood-smoked bacon and fresh produce really took it over the top,” added Haley.

“We are proud that Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s selected Midnight Moon Moonshine as the special ingredient in their delicious sweet and smoky glaze,” said Joe Michalek, Founder of Piedmont Distillers, the maker of Midnight Moon Moonshine.

“Our commitment to crafting the best-tasting moonshine has made Midnight Moon America’s favorite moonshine, and now, it’s on one of America’s favorite burgers.”
