There Are Two Holiday Drinks You Should Have This Holiday

We all know the state drink for Wisconsin is a Brandy Old Fashion…or I like to think it is. Either way if you are getting the family together for the holidays make sure that this is on your drink list.
Frozen Brand Old Fashion
What you will need is: 
6 Cups Water
1 Cup Sugar 
2 Cups Brandy – personally I recommend Korbel, it’s been a staple in our family for years. 
1 Can 12oz of Frozen OJ concentrate; thawed
1/2 Cup Maraschino Cherry Juice
1/4 Cup Bitters
Then you will also need:
1/4 Cup citrus soda like Sprite or 7up ect – make sure this is chilled
Maraschino Cherries and Orange Wedges
Directions: 
In a large saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Cook and stir until the sugar is all dissolved. Then let it cool completely. 
Stir in Brandy, OJ juice concentrate, juice and bitters. 
Pour into a 3 quart or later freezer container. 
Freeze over night. 
How to Serve: 
For each serving scoop 3/4 cup of slush into rock glasses. Pour lemon-lime soda into the glass; then serve with fruit as the garnish
