Summer is almost here I can feel it! My Grill Master and I are ready to grill to our hearts content! If you are new to CafeTerraBlog, my hubby and I have four grills that we love making savory or sweet dishes with. Here is our Pinterest board of some of our grilled treats. Now with any grilled savory treat, a good barbecue sauce is always required. There may be sugar in this recipe, but I can assure you, this sauce is all savory love! What makes this sauce ROCK is the bourbon included to enhance the flavor. This Bourbon Barbecue Sauce uses our new favorite bourbon, Alibi Whiskey.
Here at the cafe we are bourbon lovers. So you can image our excitement when we received a fabulous gift at our doorstep from Alibi Whiskey. The whiskey is 90 proof, smooth when it goes down, and will keep you warm on the inside. Bourbon is fun to use in grilled dishes, sweet treats, and of course refreshing cocktails.
This recipe is easy to make, and will keep in your fridge for about 14 days. Now since my day job is working as a food safety inspector, 14 days is the max you really should keep any prepared item. BUT the everyday cook, you may notice your sauce could hold in the refrigerator for maybe a month.
This recipe is truly the very definition of easy, and can be altered for each dish you make. The recipe below will provide more than enough sauce for your meal. However, we did double the recipe so that we had some for our lunches during the week.
