A spiced mixture of Jack Daniel's whiskey—feel free to use a Kentucky bourbon if you prefer that flavor—spices, and orange zest make up the fabulous glaze for this ham. It's the perfect ham for Thanksgiving, Easter, or any special feast.

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1/3 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Orange slices (thinly sliced)
  • Garnish: curly endive
