Preheat charcoal or gas grill to medium temperature, and lightly oil grate. In a large bowl combine ground lamb, mint, cilantro, oregano, and garlic. Add sherry, vinegar, and molasses. Season with cumin, allspice, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Mix well and shape into 4 patties. Grill about 5 minutes on each side. Heat the pita pocket briefly on the grill and it will open up. Serve burgers inside pita rounds with 1/4 of the crumbled feta on each.
