1/3 c Jack Daniel's Whiskey
1/2 c Orange Juice

2 c Chopped Dates

Cream together margarine and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beat well. Stir together flour and baking soda. Add flour to butter mixture alternately with whiskey and orange juice. beat on low speed until well blended. Stir in fruit and nuts. Grease 3 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pans. Line bottoms with waxed paper. Spoon mixture evenly into pans. Bake about 1 hour 15 minutes at 325, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack. Remove from pans.
