  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8 to 10 pounds)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2-1/4 cups ginger ale
  • 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/2-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Bake, uncovered, 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, for glaze, in a small saucepan, mix brown sugar, honey, vinegar and ginger ale. Bring to a boil; cook until mixture is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Reserve 1 cup mixture for sauce; keep warm.
  3. Brush ham with some of the remaining glaze. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, about 30 minutes, brushing twice with additional glaze. Serve with reserved sauce.
