How to make a Wisconsin Old Fashioned (Tavern Style)

You may have had an Old Fashioned cocktail in other parts of the world, but in Wisconsin they are a kinder and gentler adult beverage. Made popular in taverns and supper clubs throughout the state, the Old Fashioned is a staple. You really should try it as a slush… it is a party maker.

Miss Mary’s Old Fashioned Mix is a clean label, non-alcoholic mix so you can control whether and how much alcohol to add. We make our mixes ready to pour because cocktails should take longer to drink than to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 parts Bourbon, Whiskey, or Brandy
  • 1 part Miss Mary’s Old Fashioned Mix
  • Optional Garnish: Slice of Orange and/or Cherry

INSTRUCTIONS

Combine ingredients in a low ball glass with ice. A garnish adds nice color.

For a luxe touch, drop in a Luxardo Cherry or two. Trust us… they’re worth it.

 

HOW TO ORDER A WISCONSIN OLD FASHIONED IN A TAVERN

In Wisconsin, whether at your local tavern or in a world-famous Supper Club, you’d order the Old Fashioned:

  • Sweet – with a floater (aka ‘wash’) of Sprite or 7up,
  • Sour – with a grapefruit soda like Squirt or 50/50 (actual Sour Mix works too), or
  • Pressed – with a combo of soda + seltzer (less sugar, more liquor flavor).
Unless, of course, they carry Miss Mary’s Old Fashioned Mix. Then you just Ask for Miss Mary’s. *wink*
