Cheers to this. On Thursday, Nov. 9, the Wisconsin State Assembly passed a bipartisan resolution, making the brandy old fashioned the state’s official cocktail.

The declaration makes the state cocktail somewhat official. Since the Assembly passed a resolution instead of a bill, the cocktail won’t be added to Wisconsin’s list of official state symbols like milk as the state beverage and kringle as the state pastry. To pass a bill, a public hearing and signature from the governor are required.
