Old Fashion Old Fashions


by: anniebakes

In case you needed reminding… Last year at this time the Green Bay Packers were World Champions!!! Here in WI, we are known for our Old Fashions. I’ve travelled to other states and nobody does as good as we do. However, to change things up a little for guests, I found this recipe in the new Southern Living cookbook and just had to give it a try. The one thing I love about a great Old Fashion is the frothy mixture of the bitters and a little sour. This recipe does not have that, but the Sweet Citrus Syrup is a great replacement…
