Adapted from Kirbie Cravings
Serves 4-6

Ingredients Amount
Chicken Wings 2.5 pounds
For the Glaze:
Coca Cola 3/4  cup
Light Soy Sauce 2 Tblsp.
Brown Sugar 2 Tblsp.
Rice Wine Vinegar 2 Tblsp.
Garlic, minced 2 – 3 cloves
Bourbon – Woodford Reserve or your favorite 3 – 1/2 Tblsp.
Corn Starch t Water 2 Tblsp. each
Scallions, chopped – as garnish 2-3

Directions:
1.   Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place wings on pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until skin is crispy and wings are a golden brown. You can also make these on a grill if desired.
2. While wings are cooking, make the glaze. Combine coke, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine, garlic and bourbon into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water. Add mixture into the saucepan and stir and let glaze come to a boil again until sauce thickens. Turn off stove and immediately add in remaining 1/2 tbsp of bourbon, stirring in while glaze is still hot (you need to do this at the end so that it doesn’t get completely cooked away).
3. Remove finished wings and lightly brush wings with glaze. Turn oven temperature to 425F. Place wings back, and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes. Watch wings carefully. You want the glaze to caramelize on the skin but you don’t want the skin to burn. Remove wings and brush with remaining glaze. Garnish with chopped scallions and enjoy!
