1 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 c. brewed coffee (Not instant)
1 c. Jack Daniel's whiskey
2 sticks butter or margarine
2 c. sugar
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2tsp vanilla

2/3 c. powdered sugar
1 heaping tsp. of cocoa powder
1/3 Jack Daniel's
2 tsp vanilla

Put rack in middle of oven. Butter 2 loaf pans then dust with cocoa powder, knocking out excess.
Warm coffee, whiskey, butter and cocoa powder in a pot over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar until dissolved, about 1 minute. Pour into large mixing bowl to cool, 10 - 15 minutes.
While chocolate mixture cools, combine flour, baking soda and powder, and salt then whisk together.
Preheat oven to 350. (Don't do it before this because the kitchen gets too hot.)
Whisk eggs and vanilla into large bowl with the coffee mixture, then slowly add flour until thoroughly combined. Batter will be thin and bubbly. Pour into loaf pans and bake about 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cakes should easily come out of the pans to be cooled. If they don't, they need to bake longer or you didn't grease the pans enough.
While cakes are cooling make the Glaze. Combine Glaze ingredients in a small mixing bowl and blend on low speed. Poke holes all over cakes so they can absorb the Glaze. Pour Glaze slowly onto warm cakes

Personal Notes:
Cake has a strong flavor and should not be served to children. Please do not eat and drive.
