Anyone make their own? Store bought stuff is a little too sweet for me...

Couple of the guys I hunt with make their own, but nobody will share the recipe. Angry

Or recommend a good store-bought variety...

Go just about anywhere out of state and people are lost when you ask for an old-fashioned. Same goes for friday night fish fry's. More or less just a Wisconsin thing.

Back in the early '80s I bartended at TGI Fridays. Our Old Fashions were made as follows; Start with cherry and orange slice, muddle Add 2 shakes bitters 1/2 oz. simple syrup ( one lb sugar dissolved in one quart water) 2 oz. whisky or brandy of choice fill with ice and top with 7 up, sour, or water as preferred...............................

now a days I stick with Kesslers and water, smooth as silk.............

Well, here's what I came up with..

3 parts cherry syrup 1+ part blood orange bitters couple squirts of lime juice couple dashes of worcestershire

Haven't tried it with the brandy and splash of soda yet, but I think its a winner.

Thanks all for your suggestions -- and good luck this weekend! Big Smile

I keep mine simple. 7up, half shot cherry juice, 2+ shots brandy, ice, olives. Would have one right now but 9:00 AM is a little too early even if there is a Packer game tonight.

o.k. hers mine

i use a pint glass ( saves the extra trips Wink )

ice... three fingers of canadian club...

three dashes bitters we use fresca for sour, gives it a little extra taste

the secrect for us is we use about 1-2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup

orange for garnish

and take a slice a lemon around the rim

after you ad the maple syrup , stir it a bit to mix or it will sink to the bottom

.................................... then repeat oh i don't know 4 or 5 times Cool Wink

With good Korbel brandy I like bitters, 7-up and cherry juice. About right for my taste. Seems the mixes and or sugar make it too sweet for me. Top it off with an olive(s) or garnish of your choice.

Benuts-

The last Manhattan I had in NYC was $12.00 and that was 4 years ago..... I would expect and Old Fashioned to be similar.

Good thing it was with a client and on my expense account!

benuts - You're right, you don't want to know. I can't remember exactly how much they were but they were more than a beer of course. I'm pretty sure I paid $7 for a bud light. Needless to say I did not drink much.

I use a small tumbler, put some sugar cubes in there with a few shakes of bitters and a little cherry juice. Crush this up with a muddler. Add a little 7up to foam it up. In another glass filled with ice, add Crown Royal. Then pour mixture over that. Then top off with more 7up and a little more cherry juice with a cherry. If I have orange slices, I will add that with the cherry.

Sometimes I use bar sugar, it comes in a canister and foams better.
