Orange-Infused Whisky BBQ Wings:
  • 1 cup Texas Crown Club Whisky
  • 2 lbs chicken wings, split at joints, tips discarded
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce *Check out these homemade recipes!
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Ranch dressing and celery sticks for serving
Prepare the Wings:
  • Preheat your grill or oven to medium-high heat.
  • Season the chicken wings with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Grill the wings until they are cooked and crispy, about 25-30 minutes, turning  occasionally. Alternatively, bake the wings in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 40 45 minutes, turning once halfway through, until crispy and golden brown.
Prepare the Orange-Infused Whisky BBQ Sauce:
  • Combine Texas Crown Club Whisky, orange marmalade, barbecue sauce, and cayenne pepper in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir the mixture well and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Adjust the cayenne pepper, if needed, to achieve your desired heat level.
Toss the Wings in the Sauce:
  • Toss the grilled or baked wings in the prepared orange-infused whisky BBQ sauce in a large bowl. Ensure the wings are evenly coated with the sauce.
  • Transfer the sauced wings to a serving platter.
  • Serve hot, accompanied by ranch dressing and celery sticks, for a refreshing contrast.
Whisky and Orange Bread Pudding:
  • 4 cups cubed bread (such as French or Challah), stale or toasted
  • 1 cup Texas Crown Club Whisky
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Whisky-infused caramel sauce for drizzling (optional)
Prepare the Bread Cubes:
  • Cube the bread into bite-sized pieces. If the bread isn't stale, toast the cubes in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes until golden and crisp. Let them cool before using.
Soak the Bread:
  • Combine the Texas Crown Club Whisky and orange zest in a large mixing bowl. Add the cubed bread to the bowl, ensuring all pieces are soaked in the whisky-orange mixture. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes, allowing the bread to absorb the flavors.
Prepare the Custard Mixture:
  • Whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt in another bowl until well combined.
Combine Bread and Custard:
  • Pour the custard mixture over the soaked bread cubes. Gently stir to make sure the bread is evenly coated. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes to absorb the custard.
Bake the Bread Pudding:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C)
  • Transfer the bread mixture to a greased baking dish.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the custard is set.
Serve Warm:
  • Remove the bread pudding from the oven and let it cool slightly
  • Drizzle with whisky-infused caramel sauce if desired.
  • Serve warm, savoring the delightful blend of Whisky, orange, and spices in every comforting bite.
