Bourbon-Cherry Coke Glaze

Smoked game day fan-fare is an essential part of tailgating festivities & when a few slabs of ribs are on the grill, a finishing sauce can be prepared & brushed over the surface just before removing them. Bourbon-Cherry Coke Glaze combines several iconic football Saturday ingredients that add big, bold flavor with minimal effort. This hardworking blend can also be used for weeknight meal preparations when grilling pork chops or chicken as well. Learn how to make this irresistible sauce that’s ideal for a number of worthy occasions.

Trick Play

Prepare this concentrated finishing sauce while the ribs are on the smoker. Adding a smidgen of liquor at the end of the cooking time intensifies the bourbon flavor beautifully.

1 {7.5-oz} can co-cola
1/2 cup cherry preserves
1/4 cup Dreamland Barbecue Sauce
3 Tbsp plus 2 tsp Kentucky bourbon

Cook the co-cola in a small saucepan over Medium-High heat for 15 minutes or until reduced by 2/3. Pull the pan away from the stove eye. Add the preserves, the barbecue sauce and 3 Tbsp bourbon & bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to Medium & cook, stirring occasionally, 12 to 15 minutes, or until thickened to the consistency of pancake syrup. Remove from the heat & stir in the remaining 2 tsp bourbon. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

Substitute blackberry preserves for the cherry preserves in an equally lovely option. Stir in a smattering of fresh thyme leaves to move up quickly in tasteful BCS tailgating rankings.

How To Add Zip To Sauces

Although many flavor combinations are delicious as is, a smidgen of fresh citrus juice or zest can be added to liven them up even further. Follow this straightforward technique for capturing lemon juice & put it into action, if desired.

When fresh lemon juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lemon press. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds will be left behind. Simply remove the used lemon halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl. Look to The Basics: Lemons for additional pointers on using this versatile fruit.
