RECIPE: Root beer BBQ Sauce

Root Beer BBQ Sauce

1 cup orange juice
1 cup ketchup
1.5 cups root beer (we recommend Saranac Root beer)
½ cup maple syrup
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp ginger
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
2 dashes hot sauce

Combine butter and orange juice and simmer until you achieve roughly 50% reduction. Add maple syrup and ketchup. Stir well. Simmer 20 minutes. Add rest of ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for one hour or until sauce reduces enough to have reasonable viscosity. Refrigerate. Will last for up to two weeks.
