This is the Fourth of July so in addition to a few drinks, you know the grill will be in full use, so Sailor Jerry has a great recipe for you.

SAILOR JERRY BBQ SAUCE


In a medium pot, add 1 liter Sailor Jerry Rum, 4 to 5 quartered oranges, 3 lemons and 2 limes
(3 – 4 tablespoons of mixed fruit juice concentrate optional)
Reduce at a rapid boil by about 75% or until slightly thickened, strain and let cool
Pick your favorite brand of BBQ sauce.

In a new pot bring desired amount of BBQ sauce to a slow warm adding the Sailor Jerry Rum mixture a little at a time. For us, about 5/6 parts BBQ to 1 part rum mixture worked out well but taste along the way to see how you like it. Tasty on ribs and pulled pork!!
