Get your head of garlic and mince it all.

Saute the garlic in a saucepan with a tablespoon of the butter until it turns brown.

Deglaze with saucepan with a big splash of Jim Beam, and turn the heat to low. Put in the rest of the butter and let it melt.

Meanwhile, chop up all the peppers.

Add the peppers, adobo sauce, honey, Frank's Red Hot Pepper Sauce, mustard and spices, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour over fried chicken wings.
