Burgers and booze, together again.
Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, owned by CKE Restaurants, are slated to release the Midnight Moonshine Burger on March 23. The company partnered with Hall of Fame Nascar driver Junior Johnson on the burger; he's part owner of Piedmont Distillers, the dispenser of Junior's Midnight Moonshine.
The Midnight Moonshine Burger is charcoal-grilled, 100 percent black Angus beef topped with a moonshine glaze, pepper-jack cheese, garlic and pepper fried onions and thick-cut, applewood-smoked bacon.
CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder boasts that the sauce has all the flavor of moonshine, but none of the alcohol.
