- In mixing bowl mash the potatoes with butter.
- Add sugar, salt and whiskey.
- Spread half the potatoes in 1.5 quart buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle with half the pecans. Repeat layers.

Nice. I cut the Jack Daniels in half. I recalled from making it in the past that I thought it was a bit "boozy" with the full amount.
