Drunken Honey Wings #OurFamilyTable

Nothing satisfies a guests at a party like sticky, gooey wings on the appetizer buffet.  These wings are seasoned with a rub, grilled to perfection and then coated with a Honey and Cinnamon Whiskey BBQ sauce.

They got gobbled up so fast that I nearly didn't get a photo of the finished product!

We are sharing wings with the From the Dinner Table Group today.  Let's see what they've cooked up for us.

Game Day Wing Recipes

We share Recipes From Our Dinner Table! Join our group and share your recipes, too! While you're at it, join our Pinterest board, too!
Do you entertain on game days?  I do but never with the intention of watching the game LOL.  We are not huge sports fans in our household but we love to entertain and eat and drink so we are always up for a party.

And sometimes our guests turn on the game, which is fine with us and sometimes we will even join them in their cheers but more often in their moans....After all, we are the home of the Detroit Lions.

One of our favorite appetizers to serve when having a party is wings.  Everybody loves wings, they can be made ahead of time and they are so versatile. You can season them with whatever is on hand when you make them.  Some of our favorites are these Israeli Sticky WingsKorean Wings, Sweet and Spicy Wings, Cherry Chipotle Glazed Wings. and one of the first recipes I ever shared with you that I named Ting's Wings.

These that I'm sharing with you today, were first seasoned with a chicken rub that came with our Traeger grill when we bought it.  You can use your favorite seasoning or rub.  After they are grilled to completion, slather them with this Honey-Cinnamon Whiskey BBQ sauce and let them cook for another few minutes until the sauce is set.  Serve with plenty of napkins!!

  1. I bet the cinnamon whiskey gives these a nice kick!

  2. I can just visualize you chasing down the wings for photos! These sound delicious!

    1. The things we bloggers go through Karen, it is laughable sometimes.

  3. Hello! Cinnamon Whiskey in the glaze?! I can see why you'd have a hard time getting a picture before they were devoured.

    1. It was close Audrey, those few pictured are all that was left.

  4. Your wings look so tasty, and I love the sound of that sauce! I have never tried cinnamon whiskey, but I am intrigued!
