Review:

Fruity and lightly sweetened brandy cooled and diluted with crushed ice. What's not to like?

The Brandy Old-Fashioned is often made using Californian brandy and depending on the sweetness of your brandy you may want to reduce the sugar syrup in this recipe. Use a wedge, rather than a slice, of orange as when muddled a slice breaks up too much leaving unsightly debris in the drink.

History:

The muddled fruit Old-Fashioned seems to have arisen due to masking poor quality whiskey during Prohibition and in America lingered as the prevailing way to make an Old-Fashioned into the mid-1990s. Helped by Jeffrey Morganthaler, as muddling fruit in the whisky-based Old-Fashioned has faded so muddling fruit in the brandy brandy-based version has grown in popularity, particularly in Wisconsin where a Brandy Old-Fashioned is considered the state drink.
