Wisconsin's signature Old Fashioned is re-created with homemade orange pound cake and marachino cherry and brandy cream cheese filling, battered and deep-fried, topped with orange caramel and bitters reduction whipped cream, and served with an orange and cherry garnish.
You can find it at Water Street Brewery. In the mood for more beverage-inspired sweets? Try the Root Beer Float Donut or cake at Sprecher Root Beer Everything and Sprecher Landing.
