  • 500g chicken wings
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 100ml bourbon whiskey of your choice
  • 2 tbsp of tomato puree
  • 2 tbsp of soft brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp of white wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp of tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp of sriracha sauce
  • 3 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of pepper
  • 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 30ml of water, if the sauce is too thick
  • spring onions and sesame seeds for garnish


  • Heat the oil on medium in a small saucepan.
  • Fry the chopped onions and garlic for 3 minutes.
  • Pour in the whiskey followed by all the other ingredients and stir. Bring to the boil and lower the heat. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Strain the mixture to get a smooth sauce.
  • Set aside until the wings are cooked.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel.
  • Either cook on the BBQ or in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until cooked.
  • Pour the bourbon BBQ sauce over the cooked chicken wings and enjoy.
  • (You can cover with the sauce before cooking if you prefer. If you do make sure to keep some sauce behind for dipping)
  • (I chose to precook the wings in the oven for 25 minutes then popped them on the BBQ for another 10 minutes and coated them in the sauce)
