Steve's Bourbon Buffalo Wing Sauce Recipe


Try this sticky, Bourbon-spiked alternative to buttery hot sauce for your next batch of chicken wings.


  • ¼ cup bourbon whiskey
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (such as Frank's RedHot ®)
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Stir the bourbon, brown sugar, ketchup, white vinegar, hot sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, honey, and butter together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, whisking occasionally, until the mixture begins to bubble. Reduce heat to low and cook at a gentle simmer, whisking occasionally, until the sauce thickens nearly to the consistency of maple syrup or molasses, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
