I have another fantastic appetizer for you to add to the menu of delicious finger foods at your next football gathering. These Whiskey and BBQ Meatballs are a perfect addition to your Superbowl party. Throw everything in the crock pot 5 hours before kick off and go do other things while the flavor settles. I love an easy meal!

Making your own barbecue sauce from scratch really imparts a unique taste and makes frozen store bought meatballs seem like homemade. If you love sweet southern bar-b-q sauces then this appetizer will definitely make it onto your entertaining menu again and again. Use your favorite whiskey to make your meatballs. This recipe makes 2 lbs of meatballs but could easily be doubled or tripled for a bigger batch. Bring them to parties, showers, tailgating events, potlucks, or any other event where there’s a crowd and you want to bring the best meat on the table.


  • 2 lbs. frozen meatballs
  • ½ cup Whiskey
  • 1 ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
  • 1 Tbsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Ground black pepper


  1. Place frozen meatballs in crock pot and cover with ingredients. Stir well.
  2. Cook on low for 5-7 hours, stirring occasionally. At the 5 hour mark turn crock pot to warm so they are not too overcooked.

Helpful tip: Provide cups of toothpicks or plastic serving spears throughout your food table to make eating finger foods easier on your guests.
