Here are two of my favorite things - whiskey and Barbecue!
Below I give you my Bourbon Glazed Tri Tip Recipe - you can prepare it either on a BBQ or just as easily in the oven. Now you could serve a big Zin or WA Syrah with this but I like to make pitchers of Whiskey Gingers AKA Tennessee Mules.
3 parts Ginger Ale
1 part Jack Daniels No 7
Squeeze of lime juice plus more slices for garnish
Plenty of ice
Refreshing and a great pairing for my Tri Tip recipe
