Muddle the cherries, orange slice, sugar cube and bitters at the bottom of a shaker tin. Add ice and two or three fingers of Brandy and shake. Strain into a chilled rocks glass over ice. Top with 7-up, seltzer or Jolly Good sour. Garnish with an orange slice and cherry on a spear, fish hook, or Nail. #muddle #shake


The ‘muddle fruit Old-Fashioned’ seems to have come about during prohibition to mask poor quality whiskey. In Wisconsin, this style of Old-Fashioned is the state drink.
