Peach Iced Tea

Peach iced tea: sweet and refreshing for hot summer days; comforting and rich on cold winter nights.

“What the hell is pop?” could be my most favoritest Daryl Dixon quote ever!! It’s soda people. SODA! Even though I grew up in the Midwest, I still call it soda, thanks to my husband.

It saves me time, money, and my family devours it!!

Brandy Old Fashioned, Wisconsin’s Cocktail

Wisconsin’s version of the classic Old Fashioned cocktail, the Brandy Old Fashioned! Sweet or sour, it’s a perfect evening cocktail.

Brandy Old Fashioned

Let me tell you a story, a story about a woman who lived in Wisconsin for almost 10 years before truly embracing the state drink: the Brandy Old Fashioned. Before you judge me too harshly, it didn’t take me so long to embrace New Glarus Spotted Cow, but that is besides the point 😉 I think I can officially label myself a Wisconsonite as the Brandy Old Fashioned is one of my favorite cocktails!
