Wisconsin Brandy or Whiskey Old-Fashioned

Wisconsin Brandy or Whiskey Old-Fashioned created by AZPARZYCH

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!

Ready In:
2mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 -3 ounces brandy or 2 -3 ounces whiskey
  • 1 sugar cube (or 1 tsp. super-fine sugar)
  • 2 -3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • sweet and sour soda (50/50 or Squirt brand) or carbonated lemon-lime beverage (7-Up)
  • sweets are garnished with

  • 1 pineapple chunk
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • sours are garnished with

  • 3 manzanilla olives, pickled Brussel sprouts or 3 dilly beans

directions

  • Place the sugar cube and bitters into an old fashioned glass (8-12 oz. tumbler style glass) and muddle together with a spoon or muddler. (We prefer to use the super-fine sugar because you can stir it all together without muddling.).
  • Add some ice, to your liking.
  • Add the brandy or whiskey.
  • Top off the glass with either 50/50 soda or 7-up (sour or sweet!).
  • Garnish as described above.

    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.
