The Brandy Old Fashioned, aka “The Wisconsin Cocktail,” should be emblazoned on our state quarter! It’s widely held that Wisconsin consumes over half the Korbel Brandy distributed world wide. And with all the Brandy Old Fashioneds we make, we put a big dent in the Florida Orange crop as well! If you see someone ordering this drink at a bar, it’s a good bet they’re from Wisconsin. Hands down, or if you know the Wisconsin handshake, utters down. This muddled-fruit cocktail is an evolution of the classic Old Fashioned. To learn more about the evolution of this cocktail, go to college! Don’t worry, it’s Cocktail College. There is no tuition, no tests, (no diploma), and you can go to class in your underwear just by clicking here. Enjoy!
