READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Miraklegirl

This recipe comes from Christine Cushing. She used it on grilled drumsticks. It is a wonderfully full flavoured sauce- the coffee adds alot of depth. Try it...

Wow, this is a hot one but so good! I cut back on the jalapeno, just used one, and used just 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper and it is still hot! I didn't have expresso so I just cooked down my leftover coffee! Thanks so much!!!
