Wisconsin-Style Brandy Old Fashioned

The Brandy Old Fashioned is the unofficial state drink of Wisconsin, and with good reason – it’s delicious! We’ve gone with a sweet version of this classic, Midwestern cocktail, and while it may not technically be a true Old Fashioned, we say ignore the haters and get your brandy on.

  • Serves: 1 cocktail
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 Maraschino Cherries
  • 1 Sugar Cube
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Large Ice Cube

  1. Place sugar cube in an old fashioned glass and lash with bitters, then add 1 slice of orange and 1 cherry and muddle until sugar has dissolved.

  2. Add brandy and stir, then add ice. Top with sparkling water and garnish with remaining orange slice and cherry.
