    ~Paula~'s Note:

    You can use your favorite brandy or whiskey (bourbon). You can also make this sweet or sour to your liking by using 50/50 or 7-Up. I've heard that this is a "regional" drink, because it's not as common outside of our state!

      This a good drink that you can make sweet or sour so you don't have to make a lot of different drinks for a crowd; can just different versions of this one. I never had an old fashioned (or heard of it) until I moved to WI. I drink them at DH work holiday party because they do limited types of free drinks. Made the sweet version w/2 oz Brandy. Made for My-3-Chefs Nov 09.
