Bourbon Candied Walnuts


1 cup raw walnuts, shelled or halved
3 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. Jack Daniel’s® Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey
1 tsp. salt


Recipe: Chef John Ash


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together honey and Jack Daniel’s. Move mixture to a small, non-stick sauté pan and carefully heat on low. Heating alcohol over an open flame can cause the alcohol to catch fire. If it does, turn the stove off and cover the pan with another pan to smother the fire.
  3. Once the honey and whiskey mixture has reduced, move back to the bowl and toss in the walnuts. Coat all the walnuts evenly with the mixture and transfer to a sheet tray lined with wax paper.
  4. Cook in the oven for 5–10 minutes. Keep an eye on the walnuts in the oven so as not to burn them. When they are done, remove from oven and sprinkle with the salt. Allow to cool and enjoy!

How about a cocktail with that dish?

Cheers to being responsible.

A great host takes care of every little detail, especially when it comes to helping guests celebrate responsibly. For every occasion you plan, be sure to serve food, provide nonalcoholic options, and offer a safe ride home.
