Sauté chopped onions in a small sauce pan with vegetable oil until translucent. Pour in Bourbon carefully and tilt pan to flambé.  Burn off alcohol.  When flames subside, fold in remaining ingredients excluding salt, pepper, hot sauce and wings.

Cook sauce until a fairly thickened consistency is reached. Adjust seasoning with salt, pepper and hot sauce of choice.


Preheat pan oil to 350°F. Dust wings in seasoned flour.  Pat off excess. Fry wings in neutral flavored oils such as peanut or canola at 350° until wings reach internal temperature of 250° and there is no trace of red in the meat.

Drain wings and toss the wings, buffalo style, in a large bowl. Serve immediately. 

Seasoned Flour:

For Small wings, 4 cups seasoned flour

For medium wings prepare 5 cups seasoned flour

For large wings prepare 6 cups seasoned flour

For every one cup of flour, add one teaspoon sea salt and one and one half teaspoons of black pepper. Note that usage will vary depending on how dry you keep your hands when dusting wings.
