Screw milk…

… the Old Fashioned is Wisconsin’s true state beverage.

Whether it’s made with muddled sugar cubes or simple syrup, 7-Up or Sprite, brandy or bourbon, the Old Fashioned is universally recognized as the unofficial cocktail of Wisconsin.

I put in my time with brandy Old Fashioneds for quite a while, and I may have overdone it. Truth be told, I prefer bourbon these days.
