Hot Wing Sauce
I’m SO excited about baseball playoffs, but also excited about this post! One of my very favorite partnerships this year has been with Zevia soda. You may remember a couple weeks ago when I posted my Margarita Ice Cream Floats. I’m so proud to be partnering with a company that truly cares about its product and it’s ingredients!
Zevia has recently gone COLOR and GMO free…so on top of zero calories now they are zero color and zero GMOs. Such a great option for so many drinks, and even recipes! You’re going to love this Orange Soda Hot Wings recipe!
October is Non-GMO month and these baked hot wings are the perfect way to celebrate. Zevia is kicking off a fun campaign all about smarter tailgating, and snacking smarter is easier than you might think.
I was able to make this easy (AND SO DELICIOUS) Orange Soda Hot Wing Sauce with only non-GMO products, and you can too! I shopped at Whole Foods (not sponsored…just an easy way to find what I was looking for!), and one trip was all I needed. I’m an no expert, that’s for sure, but I love companies that are trying their best to be transparent, and Zevia is just that. Being informed is important, whichever way you fall on the debate.
How to Make Hot Wing Sauce (with Orange Soda)
I LOVE the addition of the Orange Soda to this hot wing sauce. It gives the baked hot wings such a tangy zip…it’s hard to explain until you try it, but just trust me! I know orange soda isn’t the first thing you’d imagine to use on chicken wings, but it tastes so good. The wing sauce is so simple to make too. Just make it on the stove top while baking hot wings in the oven.
How to make Orange Soda Hot Wing Sauce:
- Combine orange soda, hot sauce, honey, garlic, and butter in a saucepan.
- With heat set to medium, bring the sauce to a boil.
- Reduce heat, and let the sauce simmer for at least 30 minutes, or until it becomes thick, like a syrup.
Then you just toss the baked hot wings in the sauce once they’re done cooking. So easy!
How to Make Baked Hot Wings
Baked hot wings are so tasty. I love how crispy they get, and it’s one of my favorite ways to cook chicken wings. Once you toss them in the orange soda hot wing sauce, they just become UNBELIEVABLY good.
How to make baked hot wings in the oven:
- Combine baking powder, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Then place the chicken wings in the bowl and cover them in the mixture.
- Arrange wings on a foil-lined baking sheet.
- Baked for 30 minutes at 250°F. Then increase the temperature to 425°F and bake another 30-40 minutes.
- Make the hot wing sauce on the stove while the wings are baking in the oven.
- When the baked wings are done, let them cool for 5 minutes, then toss them in the wing sauce.
Serve em up hot! They don’t really need anything extra since that hot wing sauce is so good…but I always like to have some dipping sauces out anyways. Because dipping is just fun!
I hope you love these Orange Soda Baked Hot Wings as much as we do! They’re perfect for Super Bowl Sunday.

I tripled the recipe and used jarritos orange soda. I also added 4 fresh habaneros blended and a tablespoon of habanero hot sauce. For the wings I used a Scorpion pepper spice with the salt and pepper. I also added Asian sweet Chile sauce to the sauce. They came out phenomenal. I will be making again very soon.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing!
I can’t get zevia where I live. Will any orange soda work?
These look so yummy! I have drumsticks instead of wings, should I bake for same amount of time?
Where can I find the tin that you served the chicken in
Hey Lama, I think I got them at Crate and Barrel. I went on their site and don’t see them anymore. I bought them this summer.
Thank you so much Gerry!
I love wings, such a perfect appetizer, especially for watching sports – although we go for hockey here, not baseball! These wings look fantastic!
We love hockey too!!! So excited that it’s finally started! Thanks for stopping by Stacey :)
These are so interesting, Becky! I would have never thought to use soda in my wing sauce?! Genius! These look seriously delicious.
First of all, these wings sounds delicious! Love the sweet & spicy kick! And second, baseball season came to an end for us this past week when the Pirates lost to the Cubs. I hated to see my husband all depressed for a day, but secretly I am happy to no longer be a baseball season widow, lol. ;)
Baseball season widow…lol!! i’m always glad when fantasy baseball season ends so that A) we don’t have to watch every single darn game B) I don’t have to hear details about every player I don’t know anymore. LOL! My husband is a Cardinals fan and I’m a Royals fan so we are still very much in the thick of it!!
I have never used orange soda with my chicken before but I am definitely going to have to try! This looks so good!
Hope you love it Whitni!!
I totally feel your post season happiness this year – I’m a Cubs fan and we’re in the playoffs. Finally. Enough said, right? Loving these wings – can’t wait to try them!
Yay for postseason! So stressful but so fun :)
