  • Melt the butter to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Once the butter is nearly melted, stir in the hot sauce, white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper (optional). Bring to a gentle simmer (do not boil), stirring often.
  • Remove from heat and season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Gently stir before serving over wings.


Homemade buffalo sauce thickens as it cools. Gently reheat over low heat on the stovetop or in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl covered by a paper towel.
Omit the cayenne pepper if you prefer a less spicy buffalo sauce.
