Whiskey-Soaked Raspberry Brownies

So I wanted to make a cake that involved bourbon, raspberries, and chocolate. (Thanks to kikibean for the challenge!) But I was lazy and didn't have all of the ingredients for a cake from scratch (as all cakes should be), but I had brownie mix. So I made brownies instead. The recipe is below. If you have any suggestions on how to tweak it any further, please do not hesitate to tell me! I also don't know all of the measurements, since I'm from the "just eye it and use common sense to tell you when to stop" school of cooking. I estimated to the best of my abilities.


Ingredients:
Whiskey (about 1.5 cups?)
Frozen raspberries (fresh are better... about 2 cups?)
Brownie mix and all required ingredients to make said brownies
Sugar

Directions:
1. Soak raspberries in whiskey for at least 24 hours. Make sure you cover this in your fridge, because it smells STRONGLY.
2. Prepare brownie mix, adding about 3/4 of a cup of raspberries and adjusting the water input as necessary to achieve the proper baking consistency. Don't put any more of the whiskey into the mixture than you have to - it will make the baking time all wonky.
3. Bake brownies.
4. While the brownies are baking, drain the rest of the whiskey (save it - it's really good drinking!) and mash up the rest of the raspberries. Mix in enough sugar to make a glaze.
5. If you have any brownies left after they're cooled, pour the glaze on top of the brownies.
6. Voila! You have whiskey-soaked raspberry goodness.
