We used chicken stock instead of broth & Old Bay in place of the cayenne & salt. We didn't add the crab when we added the whiskey (used Jack Daniels) in case the whiskey flavor was strong & need...

Quick and easy. Tasted good. Used Canadian Club Whiskey and it was not too strong; in fact didn't really taste it. Substituted Old Bay for the cayenne pepper.

Even with a 1/4 cup of whiskey it was terribly overpowering. I used Dickel, so maybe using lesser quality it might not be as strong. It's an interesting recipe, but I won't be making it again.
