One-Liner What?

“We don’t stock brandy here.” ~ The Unknown Bartender ~ What? The bartender looked at me as if I asked the stupid question of the day. “Can you make a brandy old fashioned sour with fruit?” Living in Wisconsin, I take for granted that every bar everywhere will stock brandy or cognac.

This particular evening, I was in my car, facing west while stopped at a light on Wisconsin Avenue.
