Bourbon Barbecue Sauce


Bourbon Barbecue Sauce – a thick, smoky, semi-sweet and spicy barbecue sauce featuring your favorite Bourbon; it’s just what your grilling menu needs this summer!



  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, tightly packed
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic power
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt to taste


  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a wide saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Whisk occasionally and continue to simmer for 30 minutes (longer if desired for thickness); sauce will thicken, and continue to thicken once it cools.


If you want it to thicken more, be sure to use a shallow pan so the liquid is spread out and can evaporate faster.
