Kahlua Zesty BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mysterygirl

I'm posting this in response to a request. It got this out of a cookbook of all kahlua recipes back in the 70s or 80s. Any coffee flavored liqour should work if you don't have kahlua.

Thanks for this, I have been looking for it for a long time. I too had that recipe book years ago and had lost it. I love this BBQ Sauce. Thanks!

  3. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well.
  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat.
