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.


  • 4 to 6 pound boneless fully cooked smoked ham half
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1/3 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon orange peel (finely grated)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Orange slices (thinly sliced)
  • Garnish: curly endive

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 325 F.

  2. On a rack in a roasting pan, roast ham, uncovered, for about 20 minutes per pound or until a meat thermometer reads 140 F.

  3. Before ham is done, simmer a mixture of the brown sugar, Jack Daniel's whiskey, orange peel, cloves, and allspice over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes or until slightly thickened.

  4. Brush the glaze over the ham about 20 minutes before done.

  5. Serve the ham garnished with orange slices and endive, if desired.
