    was very good, however I went 1 step further...I turned it into a bbq sauce. I added 1/2 cup palm sugar (can use equal amount of honey or brown sugar), 1/4 cup cider vinegar, 1 cup catchup and 1 tsp mustard. I hate wasting good whiskey. It was so flavorful on my pork loins, I wish I had more meat to cook...  -  15 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely wonderful! Used this with shrimp and chicken today -- super!! (and to the other reviewer -- so Jack Daniels is a Tennessee whiskey -- manufactured about 110 miles from the KY border, and 225 miles from the home of Makers Mark, my favorite KY whiskey -- big whoop. It was only a suggestion anyway. That's no reason to give a GREAT recipe a 1-star rating. Use whatever whiskey you want. It's all good.)  -  04 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
