Succulent BBQ Sauce Recipe for Ribs

Barbecue spareribs are something that my family enjoys and enjoys them often! They are on the menu about twice a month here and we love to try out all kinds of different barbecue sauce recipes when we make them. After all, we would get bored if we used the same sauce over and over again. Right? right!

The great folks over at Sparkling ICE sent over this delicious looking recipe that you can use when you make ribs! While it does require numerous ingredients, it is very easy to prepare.

Succulent BBQ Sauce Recipe

1 bottle Raspberry Lemonade Sparkling ICE
1 white onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 fresh jalapeños, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup ketchup
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
One 6 oz. can of tomato paste
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
3 tablespoons scotch, whiskey, or bourbon (optional)

Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan and add the onion, garlic, and jalapeño. Lightly sauté on a low flame for 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste, ketchup, and mustard to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring continuously. Pour 1 bottle Raspberry Lemonade Sparkling ICE to the saucepan and stir until all ingredients are combined. Add balsamic vinegar and liquid smoke. Simmer for 25 minutes. Before you strain the sauce, mix in 3 tablespoons of your favorite scotch, whiskey, or bourbon (optional). Push sauce through a fine mesh strainer.
