Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Whiskey BBQ Sauce

I’ve always been proud of my BBQ Sauce recipe, but I wanted to incorporate this whiskey, so I decided to make a whiskey bbq sauce recipe that was less spicy, and more sweet for the task. I started off with my ingredients – 2 cups of ketchup, 1/3 cup molasses, 1 cup of whiskey, 1 small jalapeño, shallots and a lime. Of course, salt and pepper.


You want a medium to large jalapeño, depending on the spice level you want. This recipe is far less spicy than my other BBQ sauce recipe because I wanted to have a wider variety for all of my readers! If you don’t want any spice at all you can take out the jalapeños, or make sure to remove the rind and the seed beforehand so the flavors are still intact.


I also took a medium red onion and diced this up into small pieces.


Here we go! The jalapeño,


and the onion all chopped up!


Heat up your cast iron skillet and put a little olive oil or grapeseed oil into the pan and toss in your onions and jalapeños.


Cook them up well until they start to brown, and pour in your whiskey. Use the whiskey generously. This whiskey brand isn’t pure whiskey so it’s very sugary and lends a lot of sugar, which means it also evaporates easily and creates a glaze-like consistency…so use a lot!


Deglaze your pan with the whiskey and let it simmer down to a shallow layer.


Pour in your ketchup and molasses to get the substance working together! Season with salt and pepper and you’re done!! I was going to puree this mixture in my food processor for a smoother consistency, or use my immersion blender but decided against it. That part is up to you.

Then, I made some chicken wings, seared em a little in the pan, tossed them in the sauce and popped them into the oven! But you can use this sauce for ribs, chicken wings, bbq chicken pizza…whatever your hungry heart desires!

If you love whiskey, and you love BBQ sauce, you’ll love this easy whiskey bbq sauce.
