In Wisconsin, the old fashioned cocktail comes with brandy, not bourbon. Now, state lawmakers are making it somewhat official.
A bipartisan resolution declaring the brandy old fashioned as the official Wisconsin state cocktail won approval Thursday in the state Assembly.
It’s a resolution, not a bill, so even if passed by the Senate the brandy old fashioned won’t make it onto the list of other official state symbols that include milk as the official beverage, kringle as the official pastry, and corn as the official grain.
Some efforts to declare official state symbols in Wisconsin, like Colby as the official cheese, have run into opposition. Because some concerned that naming just one official cheese would hurt the sales, or reputation, of others.
