A Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On

In America’s never-ending “burger wars,” some people are in the In-N-Out camp, while others are passionate supporters of Five Guys.

In the Pacific Northwest, Burgerville reigns supreme. Fact is, just about every city, state and region has a handful of “burger joints” that their followers believe are “the best.”

But The Counter Burger chain has something on its menu that you won’t find at any of the aforementioned purveyors of hamburgers: wine shakes.

Potent potables of various kinds have been finding their way into milkshakes for years, so it was only a matter of time until someone tried wine.

Last we checked, three flavors were being offered:

  1. Pinot Noir, with cherries, chocolate and vanilla ice cream.
  2. Sweet Peach, with sweet white wine, fresh peach nectar and vanilla ice cream (said to taste like a peach bellini).
  3. Mimosa, with orange juice, vanilla ice cream and a splash of white sparkling wine.

You can learn more about The Counter Burger by visiting their website. And if you’ve ever had a wine shake—from The Counter Burger or elsewhere—we’d love to hear about it in the Comments box below.
