  • 1 (6- to 7-lb.) fully cooked, bone-in ham

  1. Remove skin from ham, and trim fat to 1/4-inch thickness. Make 1/4-inch-deep cuts in a diamond pattern, and insert cloves at 1-inch intervals. Place ham in an aluminum foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan.

  2. Stir together soft drink and next 3 ingredients until smooth. Pour mixture evenly over ham.
