Blueberry Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Posted by Francesca Capin on


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vomFASS Chili Oil
  • 3/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 - 2 jalapeños, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup vomFASS Bourbon Whiskey
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup vomFASS Blueberry Balsamic Star Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle powder
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 3 shakes Chipotle Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt



  1. Heat Chili Oil in a 3qt saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add red onion and cook until soft, but not brown, 2 - 4 minutes. Add chopped garlic and jalapeño to the pan, and cook for about 30 seconds, stirring often so the garlic doesn’t burn.
  3. Add vomFASS Bourbon Whiskey, and increase the heat to high. Bring the liquid to a boil. Cook until the liquid is nearly evaporated, about 2 - 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in all the remaining ingredients (blueberries through salt) and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and stirring often, simmer until thickened for 15 - 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the sauce from the heat, and place into a food processor or blender. Purée until smooth. If you want a thinner sauce to use as a glaze, pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove any thicker solids.
