This sauce is thick and perfectly balanced with a little acidity from the apple cider vinegar, sweetness from the brown sugar and molasses, smoky goodness from the smoked paprika and.........drum roll........deep oak flavor from the whiskey.
I highly recommend making this a few days ahead to allow all the flavors to really develop.
And if you're looking for a perfect hostess gift for all the Summer parties you're gonna go to, save half and put it in a mason jar wrapped in a ribbon. And, VOILÁ, a super thoughtful hostess gift!
You're gonna want to make the best whiskey bbq sauce all Summer long!
