This ham is such an incredible hit at our house. The boys devour it. I serve it with Candied carrots and mashed potatoes. So so yummolicious! Hope you try it and love it as much as we do!

Use leftovers to make wonderful French Ham and Cheese Sandwiches called Croque Madame I posted the recipe.

Thanks

The mix of Cherry Coke and whiskey made for an incredibly flavorful ham. I did baste the ham about every 15 minutes. I think that really helped to intensify the flavor. A great holiday recipe! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Whiskey Wild Cherry Coke Glazed Ham

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Score the ham on the diagonal along the fat side and insert whole cloves in the corners of each slice.
  2. Season the ham with salt, pepper, and the pinches of each herb. I mix it all together in a rub it all over the ham.
  3. Cover the ham with brown sugar and pour 1 cup of Cherry Coke in the bottom of the roasting pan. Cook the ham for about an hour to an hour and a half. Mix the remaining Cherry Coke and whiskey and baste the ham with the mixture often throughout the cooking process.
  4. When you are out of the whiskey and cola mixture, use the pan juices. It will have some of the brown sugar and ham juices yummy. When the ham reads 140 on a thermometer it's done. Take it out of the oven. It should be a gorgeous mahogany color. Tent it for about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove the cloves, slice and serve with candied carrots, and garlic mashed potatoes, So so good!

    Enjoy!
