Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the milk and half-and-half. Tear the bread into small pieces and put into a large container for soaking.

 

Pour the milk mixture all over the top. Let sit for about 10 minutes. Stir.

 

In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar and vanilla until well blended. Pulse the fruit in a food processor or blender to break it up, but don't puree it. Add the raisins and fruit cocktail to the egg mixture. Pour over the bread and gently mix.

 

Put the melted butter into the bottom of a 9x9-inch baking dish and coat the dish all along the sides and bottom. Spoon the bread pudding mixture into the dish.

 

Bake uncovered for 1 hour, or until bubbly on the sides and golden brown and set in the middle.

 

Let cool for about 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Drizzle each serving with whiskey sauce.
