Summer Essentials: Maple-Bourbon BBQ Sauce Recipe

Dreaming of the perfect summer cookout?

Try your hand at DIY condiments with this tasty maple-bourbon BBQ sauce recipe that Ashley McLaughlin from Edible Perspective shared on Craftsy. (It’s tomato and sugar-based, in case you’re trying to pin down a sauce region/category.)

It’s a little smokey, a little sweet, and has a nice zing from the bourbon. Tomato paste helps thicken everything up and the hot sauce adds just the right amount of flavor and spice.

Maple and bourbon? What’s not to love?!
