Sour Mashed Sweet Potatoes


1/4 cup Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee Whiskey
4 large sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh orange zest (optional)
1/2 cup lightly toasted chopped pecans, divided


  1. Place sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover completely with water. Add a little salt to the water. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook until tender, about 35 minutes. Drain and let cool enough to handle.
  2. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Peel off skins and place potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Mash potatoes with butter until slightly lumpy.
  3. Stir in sugar, salt, orange zest and Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey. Spoon half of sweet potato mixture into a buttered 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with ¼ cup pecans.
  4. Repeat with another layer of remaining potatoes and pecans. Bake for about 30 minutes or until heated through.

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.
