Slow Cooker Whiskey Meatballs

These meatballs are a nice change from the grape jelly and chili sauce kind. We've had them a few times now and we always gobble them up. I serve them over rice for dinner, but they definitely make a great party appetizer, as well.

If you don't want to use alcohol, you could substitute beef broth, but the flavor will be slightly different.
