Be careful when you add the Pendleton Whiskey to the pan.
If the pan is close to the heat, the alcohol can ignite and flame off.
Add the whiskey away from the heat and the alcohol will evaporate in a couple of minutes. 
When you add the half and half, add as much of it as needed to coat the mushrooms well, but you're not making soup, so don’t drown them.
Feel free to experiment with other whiskeys or liquors for this dish. I love using Pendelton because I get hints of vanilla flavor that's brilliant with the mushrooms. Sherry, Brandy, Masala, and many other spirits will work well.
