The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger features a white-cheddar cheeseburger, made with fresh 100 per cent Angus beef, topped with bourbon bacon jam made with Maker’s Mark Bourbon, crispy shallots and ShackSauce on a toasted potato bun.
The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken Sandwich consists of a crispy, whole white-meat chicken breast topped with white-cheddar cheese and bourbon bacon jam made with Maker’s Mark Bourbon over pickles on a toasted potato bun.
Shake Shack’s bourbon bacon jam marries the iconic Maker’s Mark Kentucky bourbon, which is aged to taste and has notes of vanilla, caramel and oak, with bacon that is smoked for six hours using real hardwood applewood, creating a sweet and savory sauce with woodsy and smoky flavors with a bit of heat.
The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger carries a suggested starting price of $8.49. while the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken Sandwich starts at $8.09.
Both new menu items will be available at participating Shake Shack locations nationwide on Friday, May 6, but fans can order using the Shack App for exclusive early access starting Tuesday, May 3, 2022.
