Motlow Tennessee Whiskey Pie Recipe

Cooking in Good Spirits

When you’re out for a night on the town, the bartender may ask, “Shaken or stirred? On the rocks or neat?” But in these local Chattanooga kitchens, you can enjoy your favorite spirits by the spoonful. Varieties of whiskey, tequila, and beer give these recipes a special oomph in the flavor department. Enjoy these spirituous treats and remember – cook responsibly.
