  • 1 (6 to 8-pound) fully cooked bone-in ham
  • 3 (12-ounce) cans Coca-Cola
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 15-20 whole cloves


  • Place ham, cola, and onion in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F.
  • To make glaze, stir together honey, dark brown sugar, bourbon, Dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  • Once ham is done simmering, preheat oven to 425 degrees, and discard cooking liquid.
  • Transfer ham to a roasting pan and make a criss-cross pattern in ham with a sharp knife, going about 1/4-inch deep. Stick a clove in the center of each diamond shape.
  • Brush the glaze over ham and bake for 20 minutes.
