For the sauce

2 tbsps butter
1 large shallot, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
60ml bourbon
85g brown sugar
125ml honey
1 tbsp ancho pepper, finely chopped
250ml chilli sauce
250ml barbecue sauce
80ml wing sauce

For the chicken wings

Oil, for frying
50 chicken wings
Blue cheese dressing, for serving
Bourbon, for serving
For the sauce:

1) In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the shallot and garlic cloves and saute, about 2 to 3 minutes.

2) Stir in the bourbon, brown sugar and the honey to heat through, 1 minute. Next add the ancho pepper, chilli sauce, barbeque sauce, and wing sauce and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes. Keep warm until ready to serve.

For the chicken wings:

1) Heat oil in a deep-fryer. As you make the sauce, drop chicken wings, in batches (the amount you drop in at 1 time will depend on the size of your fryer) into the deep-fryer.

2) Fry until golden brown on both sides. Remove the wings from the oil and drain.

3) Add the wings to a large mixing bowl and toss in the sauce, coating each wing. Serve blue cheese dressing and 1/2 shots of bourbon, on the side, for adults to sip.
