We knew already of burgers infused with cognac with for instance the Hawthorne at Umami Urban by Mayer Hawthorne in Los Angeles or the Cognac Burger by Cognac Bistro in Boston.
Now comes the cognac hot dog!
Dougie Dog Hot Dogs in Vancouver is serving the most extravagant (and expensive) hot dog in the world called the Luxe Dragon Dog.
The $100 foot-long Dragon Dog is infused with $2,000-a-bottle of Louis XIII cognac, topped with fresh lobster and Kobe beef seared in truffle and olive oil, and served with a secret picante sauce.
The hot dog was names Dragon Dog in honor of the Chinese New Year, which this year celebrates the year of the dragon.
This cognac hot dog is not a limited edition as it will be on the permanent menu, but you need to reserve in advance as it takes twelve hours to infuse the luxe Dragon Dog with Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac.
Dougie Dog Hot Dogs hopes to get the Guiness Book of Records to approve this entry and replace the previous winner $69 hot dog.
