Hot & Honey Sauce for Wings

Presented by Hometown Breakfast, Bar & Grill


  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 3/4 of 1 large onion, minced
  • 2 1/2 oz. butter
  • 4 oz. white vinegar
  • 2 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 quart (4 cups) prepared house hot sauce (see below)
  • 3 1/2 lbs. honey
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

House hot sauce:

  • 1 quart commercially prepared hot sauce
  • 1 large fresh jalapeño
  • 1 lb. butter


In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, gently cook onions and garlic in butter until tender, then add vinegar and lemon juice. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat, and simmer until volume is reduced by half. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature, and stir in hot sauce. Gradually whisk in honey until fully incorporated. Fold in fresh cilantro. To serve, toss 6 ounces of sauce with each 8-piece wing serving. Store unused sauce in the refrigerator.

For the house hot sauce: Place hot sauce and jalapeño in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until jalapeño is tender. Transfer the jalapeño with a few spoonfuls of sauce to blender and puree. Return processed jalapeño to the saucepan and stir until blended. Over low heat, gradually stir in butter just until melted. (Do not boil or butter will separate.) Remove from heat and cool.
