Infused Whisky Wings
Chicken wing lovers seeking unique sauce flavor must try this LĒVO-infused whiskey wings recipe. Even if you have not cooked with alcohol before, you will find it easy to integrate whiskey, herb-infused oils, and butter into cooking this perfect appetizer!
Whiskey can be used in both sweet or savory dishes. The alcohol helps tenderize the meat. Cooking evaporates the alcohol and caramelizes whiskey’s sugars.
The result is the rich expression of the meat’s flavors mingling with the sauce’s spices.
Infused Whiskey Wings
25 -30 wings
Gather your ingredients and get ready to prepare one of the most incredible treats you’ve ever had.
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- ¼ cup whiskey (Jack Daniels would be great here)
- 3 tablespoons hot sauce (homemade, or your choice)
- 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
- 2 large cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 tablespoon coarse, black pepper
- Olive oil cooking spray
- 5 tablespoons of herb-infused butter
- 4 cloves chopped garlic
- ¼ cup of whiskey
- 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
- ⅓ cup hot sauce (homemade or your choice)
- ⅓ cup chicken stock
You can make your own hot sauce before you make the marinade. Many people recommend using Frank’s Hot Sauce if you do not have time to make your own.
Wing Sauce Ingredients
Making the Marinade
Create the marinade by combining the vinegar, whiskey, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and black pepper. Mix the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Place the wings in the bowl with the marinade and mix carefully and evenly.
- Place the bowl in the refrigerator.
- Marinate for at least an hour, but your wings will be more flavorful the longer you let them soak in the marinade. For best results, marinate the wings for up to 24 hours before you plan to make them.
Baking the Wings
When you are ready to make the wings, take them out of the refrigerator, and preheat the oven to 425°F.
Remove wings from marinade and dab off any excess marinade. Arrange the wings on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spray the actual wings with cooking spray.
Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes. (When the skin becomes crispy, they are almost done.) While the wings are baking, get out your sauce ingredients and get to mixing.
Making the Infused Sauce
Melt the herb-infused butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Add chopped garlic and stir for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Lower the heat so the sauce simmers.
- Add the whiskey and stir.
- Add the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and chicken stock.
- Let the sauce reduce for 2-3 minutes.
Coating the Wings with Infused Hot Sauce
When the wings are done, take them out of the oven. Place the wings in a large mixing bowl.
Pour in the sauce, and gently toss the wings in order to coat them evenly. Avoid using utensils that might remove the meat from the bones in the tossing process. It may be best to use your hands to mix them.
Now you are ready to arrange the wings on a platter or individual plates. Serve them with carrots, celery, and/or blue cheese dressing. These items are traditionally served with wings, and the carrots, celery, and blue cheese add a refreshing element that contrasts with the heat of the wing sauce.
Tips for Making Infused Whiskey Wings
This is a versatile recipe that is mouthwatering with or without the whiskey. You can substitute other kinds of alcohol such as bourbon or rum. It would be fun to have a taste test with family and friends to see who likes the whiskey or bourbon wings better!
You can also include alternative side dishes to replace carrots and celery. Try a macaroni salad, avocado fries, coleslaw, or cauliflower for options that cool the palate after a taste of zesty wing sauce.
If you are a grilling fanatic, try grilling infused whiskey wings. Place the wings on the grill, and turn them every 5 minutes. Continue this process of turning the wings over every 5 minutes for about 20 minutes or until the wings are thoroughly cooked.
