Tequila-Spiked BBQ Sauce Recipe

tequila-spiked bbq sauce recipe | @kitchenability

Memorial Day is fast approaching—also known as the official kick-off to BBQ season. So, I’ve been playing around with some BBQ recipes in my kitchen lately, with the latest share-worthy concoction being this sweet, tequila-spiked BBQ sauce.

I slathered it on some chicken, prior to tossing it on the grill, and it was delicious! But, I think it would also taste really good on something like pulled pork. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Happy grilling season!
