Bourbon Burger



  • 1 pound chuck or ground lean beef
  • 2 tablespoons grated Vidalia onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Woodford Reserve Bourbon
  • 4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 Pretzel Rolls
  • 4 Sliced Tomato
  • 1 cup torn lettuce



  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over medium-heat
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the beef, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and bourbon. Form the mixture into 4 patties each about 3/4 inch thick.
  3. Grill the hamburgers directly over medium-heat turning once, 5-7 minutes per side. Check for doneness by cutting a hamburger near the center or testing with a instant-read thermometer. No pink should show on the inside and the internal temperature should read at least 160 F on the thermometer.
  4. The last 3 minutes of cooking ad a slice of cheese on top and toast the pretzel rolls cut side down on the grill.
  5. Serve the hamburgers on the buns with tomato, lettuce and whatever other condiments you desire.
