For the sauce:
In a large saucepan, melt the butter.
Add the shallot and garlic cloves and saute, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in the bourbon, brown sugar and the honey to heat through, 1 minute.
Next add the ancho pepper, chilli sauce, barbeque sauce, and wing sauce and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes.
Keep warm until ready to serve.
For the chicken wings:
Heat oil in a deep-fryer.
As you make the sauce, drop chicken wings, in batches (the amount you drop in at 1 time will depend on the size of your fryer) into the deep-fryer.
Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Remove the wings from the oil and drain.
Add the wings to a large mixing bowl and toss in the sauce, coating each wing.
Serve blue cheese dressing and 1/2 shots of bourbon, on the side, for adults to sip.
