If you are a lover of this iconic cocktail, try it Wisconsin-style. Better yet, make a pitcher of Brandy Old Fashioned for a crowd at your next party! But why is brandy so popular in my home state?
Stay in the loop!

Making a Brandy Old Fashioned
Sweet, Sour? Brandy, Whiskey? Wisconsinites love brandy, and Old-Fashioneds. Friday nights in many Wisconsin town restaurants go like this. Walk in and greet all of your neighbors and locals. Order an Old Fashioned at the bar, and visit for awhile until your table is ready. You may even place your order at the bar and then be seated when the food is ready. Your meal is most likely Friday night Fish Fry, especially in the Spring. Go back to the bar, and repeat step 1, and order another Old Fashioned or perhaps a Brandy Alexander. Though Brandy is very popular, we typically don't make Old Fashioneds at home.
Although there are many versions of the Old Fashioned, the one I happen to like best is one that is known all around the State of Wisconsin. That truly made me laugh, but it is so true.
