Sandestin Golf And Beach Resort Celebrates A Summer Classic
With Hamburger Recipes From Celebrities


Destin, FL -- Summertime is all about friends, fun and food and Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is celebrating with a summer classic – the hamburger.

Beginning June 21, the first official day of summer, Sandestin’s Marina Bar and Grill will feature a different hamburger each day.  Each recipe is based on burger favorites from local and national celebrities. 

Sandestin, its culinary team and celebrities are excited to combine their creative juices and cook up delicious burger masterpieces.

A sample of fun and delicious burger recipes include:

  • Governor Mike Huckabee’s “Set You Free” Burger
  • The “Thunder Burger” from internationally known meteorologist Jim Cantore
  • Destin Mayor Seevers’ “Sam” Burger
  • The Z-Burger from Emerald Coast Magazine’s Editor Zandra Wolfgram
  • The Healthy-Girl Burger from Walton County Florida Chamber CEO Kitty Whitney

Watch for additional flavorful creations from other recognizable figures, known and loved on Florida’s Emerald Coast.   Celebrities are enjoying the creativity in having burgers named after them.   “Depending on how hot the jalapenos, you might even see lightening,” said Cantore, as he playfully referred to one of his favorite hamburger ingredients. 

Sandestin is thrilled to celebrate summer in the most classic, all-American sense – warm, sunny weather, laughter and food.  Sandestin’s Marina Bar & Grill will feature a daily recipe this summer.  Guests will have opportunities to view all recipes and featured dates online.  The winning recipe will be announced at the end of the summer. 

In addition, Sandestin’s Marina Bar and Grill is a favorite destination to guests and local residents.   Each day, sunset is celebrated with the ringing of the bell and a cannon shot. Sandestin’s Baytown Marina is also the home of Maryann and Gilligan, the resort’s parrots, who will celebrate their first birthday this July 25.
