Homemade Buffalo Sauce Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups hot sauce. Use your favorite here. For me, it's Frank's Hot Sauce.
  • 1/3 stick butter. If you can, soften it a bit ahead of time.
  • 4 cloves garlic. Minced. Tastes amazing with the butter! 
  • 1 tbsp white distilled vinegar. For a clean, crisp bite. 
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce. Savory and tangy.
