READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lorac

A southwest version of "cocktail sauce'. A combination of barbecue sauce spiced with jalapenos, sweetened with honey and enhanced with rum.

A very tasty sauce. I only used 1/2 t of cayenne pepper as I felt that 1 t would have been too much for us. It was still quite hot. Served it the typical Aussie way on top of fresh bread rolls filled with salad and King Prawns.
