And another gift idea! Don't forget to use it yourself on chicken, pork and beef. I have made this using Tequila but the Bourbon does give it a nicer flavor.

  1. In a deep frying pan (Dutch oven?), melt the butter and gently fry the onions, chilies and garlic for about 5 minutes.
  2. Lower the heat and add all the other ingredients, except the Bourbon, stirring after each addition.

Everyone loved this sauce and I really liked the addition of the bourbon. It gave the sauce great flavour! I left out the chilies since I didn't have any (added in some hot sauce to give it a kick) and cut down on the brown sugar. I cut the recipe in half and it worked really well. Thanks!
