Previously known only to Stevens Point, Wisconsinites, this recipe was brought to El Paso, Texas by the late, Stanley E. Drapes, Major Ret USA in the mid-1950s specifically for his wife Lucille (Jurgella) and her sister Isabel. In fact, the recipe may have been originally been served at either the old Sky Club or The Antlers supper clubs of Stevens Point, and could have been adopted by the two Jurgella sisters.

In addition, the tradition to serve this cocktail on festive occasions has been exported to Hawaii by Stanley and Lucille's son, Vincent, and continues to be served in El Paso by his son Michael, and in Wisconsin to this day. Na zdrowie!


For a cocktail party, consider making the liter and half recipe (1.5 L). Mix a week in advance so that the ingredients can "marry" and age together. Store in the refrigerator, and the mix will taste smoother when allowed to age longer; combine:

500 milliliters of dry vermouth

500 milliliter of sweet vermouth

1 liter brandy

Serve in old fashioned glasses over ice with marichino cherries on swizzle sticks.
