Red Robin says its new Southern Charm Burger pairs well with the Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. is offering diners a little southern comfort for fall. The chain launched the Southern Charm Burger and the new Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake as a limited-time offering.

Available through Nov. 2, the Southern Charm Burger features a half-pound Angus beef patty topped with a brown sugar glaze, candied bacon, house-made honey barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, red onions, lettuce and mayonnaise served on a ciabatta bun. The burger recipe was inspired by Red Robin's 2014 South Beach Wine and Food Festival Golden Robin award winner from Florida International Univ.

"We continue to challenge ourselves with cutting-edge culinary innovation that pushes flavor boundaries to elevate our premium burger platform," said Denny Marie Post, senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

Bacon also makes an appearance in Red Robin's new Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake. The drink is made with Jim Beam Maple Bourbon, caramel and vanilla soft serve ice cream and topped with bacon bits and a strip of candied bacon. The Boozy Shake is intended for 21-and-over diners.

"The growing popularity of bourbon-infused menu items inspired us to create the Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake by re-mixing a classic vanilla milkshake with the unexpected flavors of bourbon, maple and candied bacon, further raising the bar on our adult mixology," said Donna Ruch, Red Robin's master mixologist. "This milkshake perfectly captures the rich flavors of fall to offer a unique cocktail experience — with a bit of Red Robin charm."
