Tangy Wings

Oh my goodness do I ever love this tangy wing sauce. Simple, no-frills ingredients go together in no time. The result is a kicked-up Buffalo wing sauce. Just the right amount of kick. Not so much vinegar. And the perfect consistency. The sauce sticks to the wings without being gloppy. Perfect.

Tangy Wings

If you want your tangy wing sauce to have a bit more kick you can add a few pinches of cayenne. Or a few good shakes of hot sauce. But don’t go crazy with the heat. This sauce is pretty perfect as it is.
