    • 12 medium potatoes
    • 2/3 cup half and half (or milk)
    • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1/4 cup gin (or vodka)
    • Cooked and crumbled bacon
    • Roasted garlic, to taste


Cook and drain peeled potatoes. Shake over low heat to dry. Beat in hot half and half and butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix in gin or vodka.

Add cooked and crumbled bacon and roasted garlic if you'd like.
