This Old Fashioned Cocktail recipe is a classic you must try. A Wisconsin staple, an Old Fashioned Recipe is essential for any at home bar tender.
Servings: 1 cocktail
- 1 sugar cube
- 1 strip lemon peel
- 1 strip orange peel
- 1 maraschino cherry
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- 2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey (or brandy or gin)
- 2 ounces club soda (or lemon lime soda or sour soda)
- cherry and orange wedge to garnish
In the bottom of a short tumbler, add the orange peel, lemon peel, cherry and sugar cube.
Soak the sugar cube with the bitters. Muddle everything together.
Pour in bourbon, add ice, and stir to combine.
Optional: Top with club soda.
As noted in the post, a Wisconsin Old Fashioned uses Brandy in the place of Bourbon and either sweet soda (like 7 Up or Sprite) or sour soda (like Squirt) in place of the club soda.
Please note that the nutritional information is based on the classic version with Bourbon and no club soda or soda.
