Barb Byrum has been hard at work changing up old-fashioned policies and procedures in politics, so this week we're mixing up an Old Fashioned with a sweet spin. The Brandy Old Fashioned hardly resembles the traditional cocktail; Père Magloire Calvados Brandy comes together with cherry and orange juice for a unique, sweet drink balanced by bitters and citrus. If you're a fan of sweet drinks, you'll love this cocktail. Think of it as an opportunity to change up your "Old Fashioned" ways.
