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 too much vinegar. And the perfect consistency. The sauce sticks to the wings without being gloppy. This sauce is different in a lot of good ways. Make a double batch, you’ll need it!

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. It already gets a bit of heat from the Buffalo sauce. You could of course just use a hotter Buffalo sauce if you want!

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
