No cheating this time. Mopping Sauce

I felt like using bottled BBQ sauce in my mopping sauce was cheating, so I came up with a bonafide homemade version. Here it is:

1 stick butter, melted
½ white onion, minced
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup ketchup
1 cup white vinegar
2 cups strong black coffee
3 tbs cumin
½ tbs kosher salt
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
zest of one lime
juice of one lime
tomato juice to thin

Melt butter in a heavy sauce pan. Saute onions and garlic in butter until tender. Add remaining ingredients, using tomato juice (or bloody mary mix) to thin to desired consistency.
