Sweet and Tangy BBQ Red Sauce Recipe

We made revisions to the sauce to put on our burgers.  It was shockingly good.  We caramelized the root beer with the garlic until it was practically burned.  It actually was fine and it was very flavorful.  Very tangy and just the right amount of root beer flavor and sweetness.  It was so delicious on our burgers that we’re going to try it on BBQ chicken next.  I added a 1/2 bottle more of the River City Root Beer after mixing the sauce and bringing it to a boil to thin it.  For thinner sauce  add more River City Root Beer.  Serve with River City Root Beer Milkshakes for the perfect meal.  Also, check out the lemonade BBQ sauce recipe
