Cola BBQ sauce (slimming world friendly)

I made this BBQ sauce the other day after thinking about the diet coke chicken I make and how it makes a thick sauce but could be good as a separate sauce.  I thought would need more tomato in it and so played about with the recipe a bit and came up with this.

 I used pepsi max as I prefer it to diet coke. I know it sounds like it would be expensive but I get worcestershire  sauce in home bargains and balsamic in Lidl where its about £1 a bottle. You can use the red, rose or white one the taste is the same don't use expensive balsamic vinegar of modena though it would be a waste.

It's easy to make just put everything in a saucepan and simmer until it's thick. I keep it in the fridge and it stores very well keeps for at least a month but it usually doesn't last that long!
