So this is a base for a glaze, that can be altered to compliment what you’re cooking or just used as is. It’s sweet and sticky, and caramelizes nicely over the fire.


  • 1 cup Cola
  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 4 tbs Sugar – I use golden/Demerara.
  • 4 tbs honey or golden syrup (different flavours, but they both work well)
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step 1.

Add the ingredients to a saucepan, mix well and heat, until the mixture starts to simmer, then turn the heat right down and reduce until all of the sugar is dissolved.

This recipe can be adapted many ways to suit what you’re cooking, for example, replacing the cola with apple or mango juice for Pork is fantastic, or reduce it further to make a lovely BBQ sauce.
