The concept of an old-fashioned dates back to the early 1800s and includes whiskey, bitters, cherry juice, sugar and water. This version, which is extremely popular in Wisconsin, uses brandy in place of whiskey and lemon-lime soda instead of water for a milder cocktail.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"The Maraschino cherry juice was a little overwhelming for my palate. I would reduce this from 1.5 ounces to 1 ounce...or even less."
