Summer is here bringing with it long sunny days, trips to the beach, bike rides, water skiing and backyard grilling.  As we gear up for the weekend, we thought we’d share a favorite recipe - homemade cola barbecue sauce:

What you’ll need:

1/2 cup cola

1/2 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon instant onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1 1/2 teaspoons steak sauce

1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Combine cola and remaining ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes. Let cool. Serve with chicken, burgers, veggie-burgers or ribs hot off the grill.

Enjoy with family, friends and a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage!
