When meatballs are gone, you can do shots of the sauce... Gotta admit, I usually cheat on the meatballs and buy 'em pre-cooked, or ya can make yer own. I make several batches of this and keep 'em in the freezer letting them ferment, although cuz of the alcohol content they don't freeze solid, LOL. All ingredients are to taste, no exact measuring is required... How much you make is optional. Be creative and have fun, do a shot.

  • Spread meatballs in a single layer in a shallow baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until hot, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile heat apple jelly and jalapeno pepper jelly in a saucepan over medium heat until melted, about 5 minutes. Stir roasted peppers into jelly mixture and remove from heat. Add whiskey; stir until sauce is combined.

  • Stir hot meatballs into whiskey sauce. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • Heat meatballs and sauce slowly over low heat until completely hot, being careful not to boil, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use the apple jelly jar to measure the whiskey.

Sauce can be boiled to cook out the alcohol, the flavor will remain.

If sauce is too strong, you can add additional jelly, but wait until at least 2nd day before adding. As said, when 1st made, the sauce smell will be VERY strong.

Unlike the other person that rated these I think these where great remember they are supposed to be shared with your buddies not your mom and dad and for sure not the grandparents or the kids! These were awsome! I have made this a few times now and I save the sauce to use for the next batch! If there is any left that is. Read More
