Wisconsin Old Fashioned (Whiskey)

A recipe which has become fashionable to write about on the cocktail blogs lately is the Wisconsin Old Fashioned, which mixes a nice oaky brandy with an orange slice, brandied cherries, and Angostura Bitters. It is served with crushed ice, and based on the few times I have attempted to build it (see recipe here), it is really quite delicious. When I was tasting the Baker’s Bourbon, I could not help but think to myself how well this particular spirit would work using the Wisconsin method. So I tried it a couple of times and fell into this construction which is truly marvelous!
